A workshop for developing a Chinese pastoral theological method
During a workshop at Nanjing Union Theological Seminary, Nanjing, China, this project introduces American pastoral care methods to Chinese seminarians, identified traditional methods of Chinese pastoral care, assessed the values of these additional insights for Chinese pastoral ministry, and suggested implications for pastoral theological education in China. The workshop discovers similarities in human nature, life experiences, feelings, and needs between Western and Eastern traditions. Different traditional theological methods have one goal: to understand living human documents and meet human pastoral needs. The project illuminates the possibility and necessity of developing a Chinese pastoral theological method.
