IS523 Honour, Shame, Guilt & Sin (3 credits)
Tuesdays, 1.45 pm-5.00 pm

This course is designed to help students understand the complexities of human cultural and psychological realities related to honour, shame, guilt, and sin. The goal is to integrate cultural and psychological understandings with biblical and theological principles and use these understandings to communicate the gospel in a manner that is intelligible and meaningful to people of specific cultures. The course covers literature on honour and shame, shame and guilt, and sin from multiple theoretical perspectives and offers an overview of the ways in which honour, shame, and guilt, as a psycho-social-cultural construct, affect human functioning.

IS560 / TS561 Church, Society, and Ethical Issues in Asia (3 credits)

While many Christians have personal opinions about various ethical issues, often they have not deliberately taken the time to consider biblical and contextual implications of those issues.  The course addresses common issues Christians in Asia today must consider as they seek to live as “salt and light” in the world.

Concluding our Intensive Classes for 2018

As we finished up with our intensive classes for this year, we realised that these were the last few classes that we would have at 1 Dorset Road before we transition to Grace (S.C.C.) Church as our interim venue for our classes from January 2019.

We thank God for His provision of venues for the equipping work at EAST to continue.

LF560 Christian, Marriage & Family in Asia (3 credits)
Thursdays, 1.45 pm-5.00 pm

Christians are living in a very challenging era.

It also explores a survey of the existing major research findings of cultural values and challenges in marriage and family among representative Asian cultural groups.

LF546 / TS546 Discipleship, Soul Care & Spiritual Growth (3 credits)
Fridays, 1.45 pm-5.00 pm

This is a class that focuses on soul care or “soul training” of the disciple of Jesus Christ who aspires to grow, and be a leader.  The objective of this class is not to give a comprehensive course on the discipline of spiritual formation, but on the believer’s ongoing growth and formation; and especially for leaders and shepherds, how to deal with pitfalls that crowd out our passion and space for God, e.g., living a marginless lifestyle and burnout.  There will, therefore, be hands-on soul training exercises for the student to apply spiritual disciplines discussed in class, and guide to helping them and people they shepherd rewrite their narratives in God’s power. This is a no-audit class.
