Integrating a Christian Worldview
In your weekly course journal, you will reflect on prompts and consider what it may look like to reflect a Christian worldview within Luke. Keep in mind that this is an opportunity to reflect on your growth and understanding and perhaps consider course concepts a bit differently than you have before. In 2 double-spaced pages, consider Luke’s Gospel from a biblical perspective. Choose 2 “threads” of integrating a Christian worldview to write about from the list of options below. Clearly identify which 2 threads you have chosen. Be sure to explain what your chosen threads might look like in theory and practice. Try to use all threads by the end of the course. Biblical Integration “Threads” (choose 2): God-Worshiping: The Christian worldview understands that worshiping God is about celebrating who God is, what God has done and is doing, and what God has created. Christians see worship as a way of life. Idolatry-Discerning: The Christian worldview understands that when other “things” are more important to us than our relationship with God, they become idols. Christians are challenged to identify, understand, and discern the idols of our time and to then respond prophetically. Earth-Keeping: Christians respond to God’s call to be stewards of all of creation. Beauty-Creating: The Christian worldview celebrates God as the #1 Creator and understands that when we create things we show that we are made in God’s image. We offer praise to God by creating beautiful things. Our creativity makes God smile! Justice-Seeking: Christians act as agents of change by identifying and responding to injustices. Creation-Enjoying: The Christian worldview celebrates God’s beautiful creation. Servant-Working: The Christian worldview works actively to heal brokenness and bring joy. Community-Building: Christians should be active pursuers and builders of communal shalom. Image-Reflecting: Christians bear the image of God in their daily lives. All humans are image reflectors. Order-Discovering: Christians find harmony and order in God’s creation.
