Civic and GlobalEngagement/Diversity/Worldview Reflection Instructions
Civic and global engagement involves the ability to engage local, national, and global structures as an informed follower of Christ. This requires one to have an understanding of a Biblical Worldview, as well as be able to decipher that view from secular worldviews in the areas of cultural, political, economic, and industrial fields. To impact any of these areas one must effectively engage with people of diverse backgrounds. To this avail, students will script an essay which demonstrates this understanding.
First, students should review “What is a Biblical worldview” in Chapter 0 Introductionand the view the Modulepresentations on worlview and diversity.
Note- Students will see quite a few connections between Biblical worldview and diversity- i.e. God created the entire earth and everything living. He made all of us in His image. We are all decendants of Adam and Eve, but have unique differences. We are all sinners, regardless of demographics. God reveals Himself through the Word, and has sent us diverse prophets. We are to love one another without exclusions. We are charged to go out to all nations. And, so on.
Next, students should script a 300-400 word reflectionessay using the below provided outline. The reflection should follow the traditional, academic essay format (introduction, three body paragraphs, conclusion).
Note- The textbook defines Biblical worldview as a framework of beliefs that dictate how you act and interact in the world. It is a means in which you see the world through the lens of the Bible.
