THEO 177 - CBL:Courage, Hope, Justice
How do we become courageous but not reckless? Maintain hope in a world full of despair? This course will explore the philosophical virtues of courage, temperance, prudence and justice and the theological virtues of faith, love and hope. We will study the traditions and praxis of virtue through reflection on our experience and local organizations’ efforts to positively impact others and build just communities. Special attention will be given to how discourse, habits and religious practices sustain courage, hope, and justice. While there is an emphasis on Christian ethics, readings and discussion are not limited to Christian approaches. This course is a Community Based Learning course in which students are required to complete at least 20 hours of work with local community organizations, some of which have a specific Christian mission. Partnering opportunities include working with children and after school programming, people experiencing homelessness, or through existing CSJ programs. Transportation costs are covered.
