Course Description

Theologically our public institutions—such as health care, education, church, sport, law enforcement, government, social work, housing, criminal justice, banking, social assistance, etc.—participate in the created ‘principalities and powers.’ These are meant to praise God and to bless the creation. When honouring their God-appointed vocation, they enhance us; when, as fallen, they contradict that vocation, they threaten us. This course prepares those who plan to work in the public sphere to apprehend and think theologically about that space, their ministry within it, and the church’s witness to the recovery of these powers in the shalom of God.

This is a synchronous online course being held on Monday to Friday at 9:00AM to 4:00PM.
