“Faith and Active Citizenship’ can conjure many images in one’s mind. It is the limitations of the context that we find ourselves in today which necessitate the packaging of the course content under the rubric of Active Citizenship.
While for many christians, faith and politics seems to be mutually exclusive, we at TRACI realise the need to raise awareness and the need to equip christians and the church on how we think about politics, as an initial step towards encouraging participation. It is not merely to replicate political parties but our political engagement should flow from a commitment to Kingdom values in the world, of ushering justice, peace, equality, dignity and a life of freedom and abundance for all. It is the overflow of our belief and passion in fulfilling the vision of Shalom in our world.
TRACI in offering the course hopes to raise awareness and equip Christians and the church on how we understand Active Citizenship, which encompasses a political engagement. The course will thus seek to
· lay a biblical foundation for political engagement
· expand the scope of how we will look at political engagement integrating our Christian faith and belie
· provide the basis for a deeper understanding of the political, social and economic contexts as a precursor to better engagement
· develop critical thinking and provide a framework through which we will analyse and understand our context today.
It is our desire that this course will inspire many Christians to consider a political engagement that flows from a commitment to Kingdom values in the world, of ushering justice, peace, equality, dignity and a life of freedom and abundance for all. So it’s a personal invitation for your participation in the training programme or to encourage other Christian friends to join the programme. In case you would like to receive more information and/or would like to join for this online course, please do let us know.
