WHAT IS THEOPRAXIS?
Theopraxis is designed to equip you in your personal life as well as in your spheres of influence. The word “Theopraxis” combines two Greek words: “theos” (God) and “praxis” (practice). It’s not about theology for theology’s sake, but how we live and lead based on what we know about God. The ultimate aim of good theology isn’t acquiring knowledge. It’s becoming more like Jesus, which means loving God and other people more fully. As the apostle Paul put it, “Knowledge puffs up while love builds up” (1 Corinthians 8:1).
WHAT HAPPENS AT THEOPRAXIS?
Theopraxis isn’t just about content. It’s about content and conversation. A teacher presents helpful theology and then allows time for you to absorb that content through interaction with others. That’s because the goal isn’t for you to know. It’s for you to apply what you know in your life and leadership. When you’re able to discuss what you’re learning, wrestle with tensions, and ask questions, you end up owning that information. When you own information, you’re more likely to apply it. And when you apply it, you grow and change.
ABOUT THIS MODULE
When faith and culture intersect, they often disagree. So much so that it can be difficult to find common ground. It can sometimes make us wonder if it’s possible to show someone the love of Christ when we view the world so differently. How we think about issues from politics to sexuality is as important as what we think about them.
In this 3-week module, we will discuss some root causes of existing cultural tensions. We'll also focus on how to walk alongside someone who has a different viewpoint than you.
