Unit rationale, description and aim

The Enhancing Catholic Schools Identity (ECSI) Project from Leuven relies on the capacity of teachers and others to witness authentically to Christian faith while bringing it into rich and open dialogue with persons of all ages and faith perspectives - including atheistic perspectives - in contemporary contexts. This inherently theological task is known as "recontextualisation." In this unit, participants will explore key Christian beliefs and ways in which they have been and can further be recontextualised to promote personal transformation and meaningful dialogue in their Catholic or other Christian contexts.
