Cross-cultural Practice of Ministry approaches pastoral theology and practice through the lenses of postcolonial and intercultural theologies (for which, the unit will broadly follow the distinction between and relationship of the two marked out by Brazal and de Guzman), in order to (a) understand dynamics of cross-cultural ministry, (b) scrutinize the majority traditions of pastoral theology, and (c) propose practices of ministry that express postcolonial and intercultural conviction. Examining three major strands in turn—pastoral leadership, liturgical celebration, and interfaith engagement—the unit will include among its foci attention to pastoral encounter between first and second peoples in Australian context.
