REGISTER The season of Advent is celebrated by Christians around the world as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the coming of Jesus at Christmas. In Advent, we’re reminded of how much we ourselves also need a Savior, and we look forward to our Savior’s second coming even as we prepare to celebrate his first coming at Christmas. This year the Carey Institute invites you to pause in the middle of the season to give space to the Christ Child and to prepare your heart for His birth. Inspiration and transformation await.

In order for the Church to extend the public witness of the Gospel into places where people have become isolated and marginalized, it is necessary for social justice workers to enter into community story. This course will equip students with a theological framework, alongside practical strategies and resources, to investigate issues that impact the dignity and well being of people within a given community context. Case studies will provide insights into methodology that informs community development enabling experiences of transformation that are shaped by sustainable hope for the future.

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.
