Calling Forth Our Best Selves: Prototyping Religious Education for a Globally Connected, Multicultural, and Pluralistic World
Baker, Dori
Religious Education, v106 n4 p378-383 2011
This article reports the ways five leaders situated within academic institutions widened the imagination of the role of religious education. From their own contexts and evolving vocations, they led a conversation hosted by the Forum on Religious Education and Academic Institutions. As they shared challenges and opportunities they see, they also showed how their lives prototyped diverse roles for religious educators. In so doing, they create multiple pathways for others to imagine new ways of adapting the field. The author ends with her own conclusions about how robust conversations such as this--across multiple religious traditions and diverse contexts of practice--might contribute meaningfully to the vocational identities of individual religious educators and to new, adaptive networks that may express collective vocations evolving within the field.
