Social Ethics Unit 1
Terms in this set (18)
4 stages of Praxis Circle Methodology
Experience, Social analysis, theological reflection, Action
What are the theological practical reasons that the church says that to respond to injustice, we must be in relationship with the poor and vulnerable? (Experience)
Greg Boyel: we must work with the people and not for the people - take their problems on as our own - be humble
From Where we stand: Ask how we can help and form organizations that can help empower people (MCC teaching woman to be literate)
Social Analysis (how to map/what to look for)
Relationship mapping - structures of grace or sin (blue print for justice - what aspects enable the possibility of justice?)
Where is there oppression or double binding situations (stuck between a rock and a hard place - both options are harmful)
What is theological reflection?
Why is this step essential to the process of responding to social injustice?
Evaluating the situation in light of the gospel, in light of God's dream for the world.
It includes ides of Shalom (OT) which is to bring peace and justice, the (NT) Kin-dom of God (His dream for the world where all are welcome)
and a beloved community (MLK Jr.) where all are accepted no matter their differences; differences is not a cause of fear but a source of celebration
Sources for theological reflection
Scriptures, CST, Prayer and lived experience
(Like Karma) If I help others and the world, then I'll get help in the end; what goes around comes around
empathy; understanding and feeling the pain of others
being self-relient; not reaching out to others; only concerned with oneself
Underlying patterns of relationships. Includes norms, customs, unwritten and written "rules" and laws, and institutions. Often taken for granted/invisible. Hugely influence our values, beliefs, and behaviors.
Structures of sin
those patterns of relating which break relationships, block justice or human flourishing, violate human dignity, impose gross inequalities—oppressing some while benefiting others. e.g. Housing discrimination against someone based on the color of their skin. Lack of transportation of healthy fruits and vegetables to inner city. Sexual violence against women. Overuse of water which leaves some rural families without.
Structures of grace
those patterns of relating which protect and promote human dignity, allowing all people to flourish as full participants in society. Ex. Enforcing of a law which requires equal treatment of people from all races and genders.
"I am because we are"
One human family
Unity as one human family. This calls us to stand with one another as brothers and sisters- taking on the concerns for others as though they were our own, working together for peace and justice
include not just cure
be with not just for
Inherent, unconditional worth/value, the "sacredness" of a human being. The basis for rights - CTS made in the image and likeness of God
Social norms internalized by people
Most amount of good for all people - not just the majority (creates a minority group)
Distributing necessities to those who need it; equity vs. equality
Contributive (social) Justice
Right AND Duty. For communities and persons to be fully alive and experience the fullness of their dignity, they must be able to contribute to building their society. This means ridding a society of discrimination and making it possible for all to contribute to work, education, and civic life to their fullest capacity. See "contributive justice" or "social justice."
