Interfaith Leadership in Times of Crisis (AM-667)

When loss or great stress is multireligious (or the response to it should be) there is need for robust resources and strategies for interfaith collaborative leadership. What does our own tradition have to offer? To what spiritual resources do our neighbors of other lifeways turn? What are we to do when access to those resources is disrupted? How can faith-based leaders provide comfort, hope, and cautious wisdom with integrity when anxiety, grief, fear, or demands for physical distancing threaten to overwhelm or isolate? When great loss exacerbates bigotry and blaming, what actions can we take? What sorts of interfaith collaboration have proven effective? Drawing upon case studies, scripture, devotional/theological writings, and interfaith leadership scholarship, this asynchronous online course takes on these (and related) questions as it strives to develop or deepen awareness of effective forms and methods of religion-specific and interfaith spiritual guidance in religiously plural contexts

Course fulfills the following curricular requirements:
MAIRS – Ministerial Studies: Arts of Ministry
MAC – Chaplaincy Elective
