The purpose of this asynchonous course is to introduce the student to the distinctive theological heritage and theological perspectives present within Unitarian Universalist traditions and congregations, and to equip students to begin to think and write theologically in the context of post-modern religious communities. Especially oriented to students who identify as Unitarian Universalists, this course will encourage participants to form a practice of engaged theological thinking within the context of Unitarian Universalism’s particular perspectives, resources, limits, and possibilities. The course requires a lot of reading and viewing videos, weekly synchronous one-hour discussions with a small group at a mutually convenient time, four 100-200 word posts on discussion threads each week, periodic written assignments, and a final project. Appropriate for MDiv, MASC, and certificate students.
