The North American Church has a propensity to focus on the individual (whether on individual sin or individual holiness) to the relative neglect of the larger powers that shape and misshape persons, communities and society. As a result, people often end up looking for individual biographical solutions to systemic social problems or powers, both within our churches and our society.
In the first part of this course, participants will seek to understand some of the primary forces shaping our world – and thus shaping persons – including individualism, consumerism, globalization, social inequality and secularism. Participants will be introduced to a number of writers who offer insightful and systemic societal analysis of ‘the powers’. These powers will be studied within a framework of a kingdom theology that calls the Church as community located in a particular place to bear witness to the present and coming reign of God in all of its fullness. Participants will be invited to explore how they can form missional communities that resist these misshaping forces and bear witness to an alternative reality. They will also be asked to identify and reflect upon the practices that will sustain Christian communities for the long arc of God’s transforming and healing mission.
This doctoral course is taught be Dr. Tim Dickau at Carey Centre in the South Classroom January 12-16, 8:30-4:30pm.
