2022 Regent Summer Programs


Pastoral Ethics: Biblical Ethics for a Global Church

May 16–May 20 8:30AM–4:30PM THEO 630 3 Credits (2 Audit)

Learn to lead and pastor in response to the ethical issues that face today's global church. Explore a biblical ethic of kinship, discerning Scripture’s invitation to live in loving solidarity with one another. Discern how this ethic can shape communities today, moving from church to neighbourhood, city, nation, and world. Together we'll examine biblical ethics while considering the global church, drawing from global scholars and practitioners, and considering pastoral ethics in four dimensions: biblical-theological; healthy protocol for an ethical ministry; systemic and historical issues (e.g. creation care, Indigenous/settler relations, race); issues of pastoral counselling (e.g. sexuality, abortion, euthanasia).
