The Kingdom of God – A Movement for Social Change?


This highly participative course investigates the dimensions and possibilities of bringing the Kingdom of God to bear in every sphere of life. Drawing on theoretical and theological perspectives, we will explore our own lives and reflect on interviews I recently conducted, with people expressing their faith in politics, education, working with vulnerable people, business, and technology. The aim of the course is to challenge us to think more broadly about the missional nature of our lives, our work, and our communities, increasing our clarity and confidence to act in our world at a time of huge challenge, change and opportunity.

Course facilitator: Dave Beck

Over the past 20 years, he has developed undergraduate and post-graduate programmes in Community Development, at the University of Glasgow. His research outputs include books exploring Popular Education and Community Organising and a range of articles covering issues such as community-based addictions, social capital, and university/community partnerships. His most recent book rethinks the purpose and methods of Community Development for the 21st Century.
