Do you wonder,
why it is we see
the world in such different ways than our friends and family?
Grace Matters is pleased to announce a local course on Christian Worldview. This course is an excellent option for believers who cannot clearly articulate what they believe, and for teens.
Have you ever wondered why it is we can have the same hopes and dreams as our friends and family and yet see the world in such different ways? Our world view shapes how we interact with both our Creator and His creation, often complicating our relationships. Grace Matters is committed to helping Christians better understand their faith and how to communicate it to those closest to them. Join us as we delve into the complexities of the Christian faith and its intersection with other faiths.
This course introduces a brief history of Christianity, an overview of the major world views present in American culture and a brief guide of how to effectively interact with them. The purpose of the course is to provide students with sufficient understanding of their Christian World View and how that world view affects their interactions with people of differing views. The end goal is the ability of the student to effectively explain/defend their Christian world view and love those of differing world views in a Christ honoring manner.
Upon completion of this course, a student should be able to:
- Articulate their Christian beliefs and be able to discuss these beliefs with others in an informed and compassionate manner.
- Articulate a general understanding of the various dimensions of several major religious worldviews: history, geographical areas of influence, ritual practices, doctrinal beliefs, ethics, expected experiences.
- Express the relationship between the religious aspects of a culture and individual behavior.
- Have the ability engage those of differing religious views both wisely and compassionately.
