Congregations and Communities  (RS-580)   
Winter/Spring 2004

The course covers three areas: (1) an exploration of communities as local demographic settings within larger urban, regional, and national contexts; (2) an exploration of congregations as local religious organizations; and (3) the study of how congregations respond to their communities as well as how communities influence the nature and dynamics of congregational life.   The primary emphasis is sociological and theological but interdisciplinary and experiential approaches are also included.
