CERT 302 - The Theology and Ecology of Common Ground

3 credits
This course focuses on the role of camp/retreat ministry in inspiring and training spiritual leaders who shape society by engaging communities and congregations in ministries of earth care and social justice as an expression of holy common ground. Students will study biblical and theological perspectives on the link between faith in God and loving interdependence among people and of all creation. The course further gives a basic overview of key ecological principles and environmental concerns facing contemporary societies; studies the global social justice aspects of the ecological crisis; explores site operational practices that establish camp/retreat/conference centers and communities as Common Ground Centers where people practice Christian stewardship of creation, justice and mercy; and discusses strategies for training and involving both urban and rural leaders for Common Ground Ministries that reach out beyond the camp/retreat site or local congregation. Same as: TPHL 529 .
