Wait a Minute in Stressful Times


It is easy to fall into naive visions of what it means to be theological educators and scholars. The reality is that we often find ourselves working in challenging circumstances of great stress.  Our students also live in challenging times and experience different forms of stress.

In this insightful nanocourse, Professor Jos de Kock helps us explore how educators in faith communities can adequately serve in challenging contexts through the practice of learning in encounter.
