Full course description
Revitalize the Church
It is a challenging time in the Church. Leadership, governance, and the sexual abuse scandal have all contributed to a breakdown in trust among its members and brought about serious questions around its viability. This course offers an alternative way to view the situation by considering the potential for renewal and revitalization. Articles from the Summer 2019 C21 Resources and video segments provide material for reflection, contextual understanding, and practical strategies for moving towards reform.
This course has a required resource: Summer 2019 C21 Resources, Revitalizing Our Church.
Week 1: Reflections on the context – ecclesial, historical, and cultural – of the challenges the Church faces.
Week 2: Practical strategies and pathways leading to reform and renewal.
