P515 The Art of Reading Congregations
Recognizing that theological education must be seen in the context of the church and its mission in the world, this class helps students develop the art of reading congregations as "living human documents." Multiple interpretive frames and methodologies for analyzing congregations are introduced as tools to enable practical theological reflections. Students learn to read the congregation and its history as context for the transformative praxis of pastoral leadership. Prerequisite: SM210 or by permission of instructor.
