Summary:

This course will have two parts. The first half will look at key theories, sources, and methods used in Christian Ethics and the second half will look at specific contemporary issues that are likely to arise in a church context, such as abortion, euthanasia, disability, war, violence, and politics. The concepts, distinctions, texts, and questions presented in the course will help students practice integrating Scripture, tradition, philosophy, and experience and give them resources to better assist family, friends, neighbours, and parishioners in thinking through ethical issues. It will also ask and explore attendant questions around the major moral issues that could arise specifically in the life of parish ministry.
