This course provides vital resources for the Christian moral life. We begin by posing the question of whether “Christian ethics” is even possible, given the scriptural account of the Fall as the pursuit of “the knowledge of good and evil.” Alongside lecture content on the various ethical aspects of community leadership, we will consider how the life of Christ—his conception, birth, suffering, death, and burial—can guide us in moral reasoning about contested ethical questions surrounding the beginnings and endings of human life. Our focus on “everyday ethics” is intended to support those preparing for pastoral ministry, as well as lay Christian leaders, in moral reasoning about the rites and passages that constitute their service to church and world.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
