Practical Christian Ethics

Online: March 5 – April 30, 2018
In Person: Saturday, April 7, 2018 at the ECMN Retreat Center in Faribault

This formation experience will engage the tradition of Christian theological reflection on human action. We will explore Christian ideals of conduct, character, and community, with particular attention to their practical significance.  We will focus on the life of the church as well as the role of religion in public life. We will give special attention to the ways that Christian beliefs and practices interact with systemic social and ecological problems, particularly racism, sexism, heterosexism, and classism. This course is an invitation to cultivate an ethical style.
