About the course:

Liturgies of Resistance explores the classic Christian ordo and the ways it has been used historically as a moment of resistance against socio-political oppression and domination. Students will participate in facilitated dialogue to prompt resistance thinking and develop their competencies as practitioners of the sacred by examining contextual liturgies and various practices in response to major social moments. Ecumenical in scope, this course focuses on ways in which global communities have responded to injustice through Eucharist, Baptism, music, and preaching. Special attention will be given to historic narratives that link liturgy with public theology as resistance to injustice. Course content introduces participants. This is a professional development course for continuing education only. Not for graduate credits.
