With an eye toward the roles, responsibilities and concerns of lay ecclesial leaders of the Church in the modern world, this course explores fundamental categories, methods, concepts and norms used in moral theology to analyze and evaluate human moral experience (individual and social) and to address central questions of Christian theological ethics. Topics include the use of Scripture, Tradition, and experience as foundational sources in moral theology; the Church as locus for Christian moral life; the connection of worship and spirituality with the Christian moral life; the relation between Christian ethics and theological understandings of freedom, conscience, authority, character, sin, grace and responsibility; and application of moral analysis to selected contemporary moral issues (personal, professional and social).
