The Anglicanism and Social Justice program at EDS at Union is a non-degree, virtual theological education program for lay and ordained Christian leaders. Over the course of two years, the program sequentially examines the following issues from a theological perspective: racial justice, environmental justice, gender and sexuality, and economic justice. Throughout, the program explores intersections between these issues and asks how the church is being called to respond. It also examines Christian biblical interpretation and the Anglican/Episcopal tradition as historical sites for sanctioning and/or resisting oppression.
ASJ cohorts gather ten times virtually in an academic year and read four to five books each semester. The virtual sessions include orientations, lectures, plenary conversations, and small group discussions. For four of the ten gatherings, ASJ cohorts participate in weekend intensive courses at EDS at Union. Designed specifically for the ASJ program, these courses are also open to graduate students at Union Theological Seminary and the broader Union community.
