There’s still time to register for the new course: The Theology of Resistance

Does your faith inform your civic participation?
Do your values compel you to act, but you don’t know how?
Do you wonder what the role of the faithful is in reforming our society?

In this era of domination, illegitimate authority, social violence, and spiritual disempowerment, faith traditions can provide a resource for resistance and reweaving human community.

Locally, Detroiters are ruled by various forms of “Emergency Management. What are people of faith called to do in this moment?

Accessing a variety of faith traditions, this course will help students develop their own theology of resistance. Pedagogically, this development will be focused by reading texts in diverse sites of struggle in the city, supplemented with common readings, contextual Detroit history, non-violence training, student initiated direct action, and common reflection on all.
