From the Dean: Can We Resurrect from Our Death Spirals?

DeanMarkuly90x90

We cannot avoid small and large-scale deaths in our lives. One of the great challenges of life is learning how to walk through them. Throughout history, a rich mixture of human and spiritual development helped most people learn to do so with a measure of humility, grace, meaningfulness, and even transcendence. The hallmark of great people and great leaders has often been their skill in maneuvering through their death experiences and transcending them so effectively that energy remains to help others deal with their own small and large deaths.

Doing Theology in a Living Laboratory

R-on-Black-90x90

In the learning experiences of the hard sciences, laboratories are created where students work alongside faculty to test hypotheses in the lab. The humanities and even theology can sometimes become a data download of information about a religious tradition without any real efforts to test out the theology with others. In constructive theology, a faculty member and students attempt to articulate an understandable theology for this day and time and for a particular context. Welcome to the concept of Religica, an interdisciplinary lab designed for students to engage the world with their theological understandings in new ways.
