Description   Not since the Second World War has the planet
experienced such massive migrations or
displacement of persons. Fueled by violence, war,
economic hardship, and quest for human freedoms,
these persons created in the image of God often
fleeing deplorable conditions, call for a
response from world communities. This course
focuses on the biblical, theological, ethical,
and pastoral issues surfacing from these
situations. Beginning with a review of the
theological literature which has surfaced in
recent decades about this phenomenon, it aims to
explore possible pastoral responses through the
see-judge- act praxis model. Engaging a
lecture-seminar format, it will include films,
guest speakers, and a final research
paper/project, along with a few minor
assignments. Students may upgrade for certain
programs and auditors are welcome with the
permission of the instructors.
