Learn ethics to counter oppression and design strategies to sustain your ministry/activism. This course was offered at Starr King School for the Ministry, a member school of the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California.
This intensive seminar roots itself in the dialectic between resistance and resilience of communities and congregations in a world where survival requires than bouncing back from crises and adversity. Geared particularly toward MDiv and MASC students, this course places life stressors, safety and health in the context of oppression, white supremacy and social movements. Through rigorous study, dialogue and spiritual reflection, students will understand the historical and cultural dynamics of stress and resilience, identify contextual factors and healthy strategies, and promote cultures of resistance in their ministries and activism.
