THS 630 - Theology of Pastoral CareĀ 

3 Credits

Offered every other year

The core theological themes of hope and compassion serve as a foundation for a theology of pastoral care in this course. Contemporary issues of pastoral care and participation in suffering will be explored carefully in an effort to understand the complexity and the roots of human anguish. Participants will be invited to explore their own framework for moral vision, to articulate their theology of pastoral care, and to prepare themselves for a deeper participation in the suffering of others as agents of hope in a broken world.

Prerequisite: THS 571
