This seminar for advanced students in all GTU degree programs (upgrade is available for doctoral students) will explore the theological intersections of eros, embodiment, and human relationality through the lenses of Christian systematic theology broadly and of queer theology more specifically. In critical conversation with work on the theological dimension of sexual desire, queer theory and queer theology, and nuanced views of gender and embodiment, this course will examine how sacred and carnal desires converge in actual bodies, reconfiguring relational possibilities as part of the inbreaking of the eschatologically "new." Active seminar participation and occasional leadership, brief reading responses, and a final theological research paper are the course requirements.

Faith in a pluralistic, postmodern culture cannot simply be absorbed from one’s community; it must be constructed. Influenced by insights of developmental psychology, ethnography and sociology, this course prepares students to prepare programming and shape formation experiences rooted in an understanding of the context in which individuals live and worship. Assignments include an opening paper in which students explore their theology and teaching philosophy, a reflective ethnographic paper on an unfamiliar community of faith, a 20-minute teaching presentation and a final paper reflecting on the opening paper in light of the experiences of the semester. This course is the online version of ED 1225.
