Issues Facing Churches Today
The goal of the course is to explore what kind of issues churches are facing in contemporary world, to reflect and to recommend how churches respond to these challenges. The goal is not about the concern of survival, but about the concern of mission, Missio Dei. Apart from a lot of issues surrounding us, different agendas of churches (or denominations) make the selection of the issues for discussion more difficult. Due to this, the design of the course adopts an interactive approach, that is to say, we come to discuss, decide and analyze the issues for study. We work in a group, not individual, although assessment is individually based. At the same time, methodologies of theological reflection are introduced.
