Redeeming Babel is partnering with John Brown University and Taylor University’s Honors Program to offer a colloquium course for honors students. Students will embark on a journey through Redeeming Babel’s video-based curriculum as a way to prepare for life after college. The three central topics are: anxiety, institutions, and politics.
The first part of the semester will focus on anxiety, offering methods and tools for how to encounter Jesus through anxiety in a different, life-altering way. The second part of the course covers the theology of institutions, demonstrating why God has a purpose for all institutions and how one’s own vocational calling and giftings tie into God’s plans for organizations. The final component of the course examines the case for a Biblical understanding of local and national politics that emphasizes the “how” of political engagement through virtues like mercy, humility, and justice (Micah 6:8) rather than the “what” of ideologies, policies, parties, and politicians.
This threefold approach provides a holistic framework to equip students for life after college with the resources to succeed as Christian leaders in a diverse and complicated world.
