Theology & Ethics: Liberation Perspectives & Praxis with Dr. Francisco Garcia 

In this course, students will be introduced to theological-ethical perspectives from liberation traditions with attention to various cultural, social, ethnic, and political contexts that have emerged from historically marginalized communities, with a focus on the United States and Latin America. This course places scholars from various liberation traditions (Latin American/Latinx, Black/Womanist, Indigenous, Asian American, Feminist, Queer, Working-Class) in conversation with each other and highlights the necessary interrelationship between liberation theologies and liberation ethics. Throughout the course, attention will be given to practical applications for ministry in diverse contexts within the Episcopal/Anglican tradition as well as in ecumenical, interfaith, and community settings.

New Testament Greek for Ministry with Bob Kramish

Have you ever wanted to understand the original meaning of a New Testament text without having to take an academic course in Greek? Adding a little Greek to your sermons and adult education classes in a user-friendly way (for both you and your audience) can spice up your preaching and teaching. This course will introduce you to some basic tools such as dictionaries and interlinear bibles, as well as other online resources. You’ll learn the Greek alphabet, and enough about basic Greek grammar to enable you to discover some interesting features behind the meaning of the ancient text, and thus enhance your sermon preparation and scripture study.
