Christian Nurture and the New Cosmology
Price, Elizabeth Box
Religious Education, v103 n1 p84-101 Jan 2008
Christian Religious Education recognizes the crisis in perception caused by eroding cosmologies and engages persons in the reformulating of Christian stories that negate a limiting materialism perpetuating consumerism destructive to life. A course is developed for theological students in which they may become aware of cosmology and its New Story, discern how it may be intentionally incorporated into the education of faith communities, use tools for creating curriculum, and generate methodologies for transformative learning. The course embodies the implications of current cosmology activating a partnership of learning through embodied knowing, conceptual imaging, visceral experience, and somatic learning. (Contains 1 footnote.)
