Seeing Christ in Human Rights

27th July - 29th July 2018



Virtually all of the world’s great religions have endorsed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Within the various Christian traditions, affirmations are commonplace, but what is it that Christians see when they engage with the Declaration through a Christ-centered lens? This course will explore the affirmation of dignity, community, and right relationship in the Declaration and question how its principles apply within the church. A goal of the weekend will be the cooperative creation of a PowerPoint presentation on human rights suitable for use in Christian education settings.
