In this course of applied ethics, attention will be given to specific ethical problems by which someone in the pastorate might be confronted. Very often the pastor/counselor takes the role of a moral consultant giving advice in the middle of a moral controversy. The student will be trained to apply the methods of moral reasoning thought in this basic Christian ethics course. The course also integrates ethics with pastoral ministry and counseling. Different contemporary issues such as infertility, abortion, euthanasia, divorce and remarriage as well as professional integrity of pastoral life will be discussed.
