Local Community Learning Initiative
World Religions and the Making of Meaning
July 16-20, 2018 | Bozeman, MT
Human beings engage in meaning-making in order to understand and describe their world. In this course we will consider the examples of metaphor and narrative and identify influential metaphors and narratives within different religious traditions. We will investigate the ways in which the self, the community, and the world are understood within these different traditions by exploring the dominant metaphors and narratives that appear within them. Finally, we will explore the underlying imaginative process that allows humans to engage in meaning-making using the work of Paul Ricoeur. NOTE: This weeklong LCLI course is free and open to the public. It may also be taken for elective credit in YTI’s Master of Applied Theology program at regular tuition rates.
