ChristoWitch87 Posted May 19, 2019 Share Posted May 19, 2019 So I am entering my final year of M.Div studies and things have taken a turn for the strange. What I thought was going to be a fairly straight forward journey to obtaining a credential for chaplaincy has turned into writing a thesis on the search for a common theological language for dialogue between Christianity and Neopaganism. As I've worked on this topic, I've come to realize that common ground isn't to be had so much between Neopaganism and Christianity proper as between Neopaganism and process theology. The mutability of God, a panentheist view of experienced reality, and the general evolutionary/unfolding view of both humanity and God are things largely accepted in Neopaganism. My project is quickly becoming the creation of a Neopagan theology communicated in process language. I am in the very early stages of contemplating further study, but I am curious, what are admissions like for CST? Who else does process theology? What should I do in terms of languages and coursework to prepare (An STM/Th.M is not out of the question as I have enough GI Bill left)? Are there realistic placements for this field given it appears to be small? In terms of a topic, I would likely focus on how a process framework affects gendered concepts of divinity in religious devotion (e.g. the male architect-God of being vs. the female-mother Goddess of becoming). Background: BA Philosophy and Math, SUNY (3.75/4), MAR Theology from YDS (N/A weird grading system), M.Div from a small ATS accredited mainline school (3.8-3.9/4). Languages: Spanish, Persian (Long Story) Thanks in advance. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
