The World Council of Churches Ecumenical Institute at Bossey sets out to broaden its repertoire of courses in Ecumenical Studies to include a free course now offered fully online.
Applications are now open for the new online course, entitled “Together Towards Unity. Being Church in a Fragmented World.”
Starting in April 2021, the course aims to expand opportunities for students to explore the biblical, theological, ethical, societal, interreligious and missiological dimensions of ecumenism as envisioned at Bossey. The course offers succinct introductions into the classic dimensions of ecumenical studies. Through specific assignments, students are guided in exploring ecumenical relations in their local context, sharing about it in a global cohort of students and deepen their understanding through theological study. Strengthening the students’ agency and the students’ capacity for theological discernment is vital in this study program.
The course is FREE and is taught in English.
Deadline for application is 1 March. The course runs 5 April to 12 June.
