January (Epiphany Term) Courses

Jesus Wept: When Faith and Depression Meet\nNo leader of a faith community and no spiritual director can afford not to know about the quiet devastation of clinical depression, which affects twenty million Americans. People of faith may have a unique relationship to this condition, ranging from a profound shame that makes them reluctant to seek treatment to the popular insistence on perpetual cheeriness as a necessary condition of faith to a gracious appropriation of ancient categories of challenge and wholeness. This class will examine depression as it is currently understood, as well as the ways in which its despair has been treated in Christian tradition. Adjunct Prof. Barbara Crafton, 3 credits. Epiphany 2011. Monday through Friday, January 10-14, 2011 from 9:00-5:00 pm. Sherred 1A.\nAT346/546: Greenfaith: Earth Spirituality, Stewardship, and Justice Practicum\nImagine a world where in every community religious leaders speak influentially on the environment; where houses of worship use renewable energy, produce no solid waste, press for clean-ups of local toxic sites, and lead community efforts for environmental sustainability; and where religious educators teach children that caring for the earth is an ethical obligation. This course will offer participants theological and practical training to make this world a reality. Adj. Prof. Fletcher Harper, 3 credits. Epiphany 2011. Monday through Friday, January 24-28, 2011 from 9:00-5:00 pm. Sherred 1B.\nSPIRITUAL GUIDANCE OF CHILDREN\nSGC40: Biblical Theology for the Spiritual Guidance of Children\nBiblical Theology is a discipline that studies the narratives, poetry and other literature of the Bible to discover how the writers of biblical texts understood interrelationships among God, humans, and the world. With such critical study, we can then reflect on how the biblical theologies influence our own today. In this course, we’ll explore several foundational stories in the scriptures, focusing on how these give rise to our thought and talk about God and creation. Through lectures, discussions and small group exercises, we will especially consider the ways children hear, wonder about and interpret biblical stories. This course is not open to auditors or for consortium registration. Students may elect to take the course for a grade or for pass/fail credit. Prof. John Koenig, 1 credit. Epiphany 2011. Saturday through Sunday, January 15-16, 2011 from 10:00 am-5:00 pm. Sherred 1B.\nSGC 301: Practicum in the Spiritual Guidance of Children\nThis practicum teaches the art of inviting children into the Christian language system in a way that honors their wonder and undifferentiated awareness of God’s presence and encourages them to make meaning about the existential limits to their being and knowing. It is in this context that the skills of observation, the relationship of child development to the spiral curriculum, the awareness of method, fluency in the curriculum, and foundational theory are experienced and critically reflected on Godly Play is the centerpiece of this supervised experience with special attention to key core presentations found in Volumes 2, 3, and 4 of The Complete Guide To Godly Play. This course is not open to auditors or for consortium registration. Distinguished Visiting Prof. Jerome Berryman, 3 credits. Epiphany 2011. Monday through Friday, January 10-14, 2011 from 9:00 am-5:00 pm.

Chiming on the Centennial of the Triangle Factory Fire

Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire Centennial Carrilon Ring\n \nOn March 25, 1911, 146 people, mostly young immigrant women, died in a fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York City, a tragedy that became a catalyst for the international labor movement and the development of workplace safety laws. In observance of the centennial, General Seminary will join churches, schools, and fire houses throughout the city in ringing bells at 4:45 pm, the time the first alarm was sounded. The Guild of Chimers will toll a series of 12 rings of the bourdon, the heaviest bell of the carillon, then chime a refrain of Shema Yisrael in recognition that the majority of those who died were Jewish.
