This degree program is designed to prepare you, then assist you, in the preparation of your church and community before another 911 comes along.

Crises, disasters in every proportion, these are the days in which we live. Disasters, various emergencies and even terroristic activities threaten our people; even our churches. When we, the church, are called upon to respond, are we ready? Even with a heart full of desire, Christian people, in most cases, do not know how to respond. Entire communities, in many cases, are unprepared for sudden natural or man-made disasters. Crises affect our world and we must prepare to meet the needs they create. This degree program is designed to prepare you, then assist you, in the preparation of your church and community before another 911 comes along.
Each text requires a ten to twenty page review summary of the text.

Evaluate her rationale for the reading program she delineates in part 2.

Characterize her writing in part 1. Would a consideration of René Descartes’ Discourse on Method (1637) help to place Sor Juana in mainstream European intellectual concerns of the seventeenth century? Evaluate her rationale for the reading program she delineates in part 2. What does she endeavor to establish in part 3? Do the sentiments expressed there suggest why this woman had no choice but to enter a convent? How do the concerns expressed in her Reply contribute to an understanding of the vibrancy of the Christian humanist tradition which was always a part, sometimes controversial, of Catholic Christianity? Post a response to Discussion 6 – Yo, La Peor de Todas (1991) of 300 words (80% credit) Give a summary of the movie: who? what? when? where? (20%) Give your critical (and personal) reaction to the film (20%). Discuss what aspects of Catholicism in Latin America are illustrated by the movie? What aspects of gender and patriarchy?

I will be grading this writing assignment based on:

For this writing assignment you will incorporate one quotation from each of the three following sources:
Bereshit / “Genesis”
Armstrong “In the Beginning” (34-73 & 117-119) – Content folder week 4
Wiesel “Messengers of God” (3-32, Adam) – Content folder week 4
As these sources have overlapping material in both general and specific ways, what you write about, specifically, is up to you…and that is what I am most interested in reading:
Compose a critical examination from your reflexive lens how both Armstrong and Wiesel contribute to subjective textual interpretation.
I will be grading this writing assignment based on:
The clarity of your writing
Utilizing brevity to focus your observations
Successfully incorporating one quotation from each source in MLA format
