Thea/ological ethics has been described as “an art of doing the work our souls must have” (Emilie M. Townes). This course introduces diverse methods of moral decision-making to religious leaders. Using on-line tools and live web-based video sessions, students will engage concepts and tools related to the opportunities and challenges of prophetic moral leadership in congregations, organizations, and society. The class gathers weekly to build moral community, reflect on key multi-religious sources of ethics, and exercise their skills in applying concepts to real-life situations and providing ethical guidance to individuals and communities. Readings, multimedia resources, and assignments educate to counter systemic oppression and promote diverse forms of scholar-activism and leadership. Serving as a foundational course in ethics, students will be given the opportunity to tailor course requirements to fit their particular tradition. This is a Hybrid course.
