Theological Reflections on the Gifts and Challenges of Service-Learning

(p.188) 11 Teaching to Transform
Lived Theology

Jacqueline A. Bussie

Oxford University Press

This chapter develops a pedagogy of lived theology that includes experiential-learning, service-learning, and organized encounters with lived theologies in the North American religious landscape. The author discusses the risks, ambiguities, and challenges encountered in service-learning. She also calls attention to the fact that virtually no critical literature exposes the unique challenges that lived theology professors face when their service-learning students actually begin to be transformed by the lived theologies embodied in underprivileged communities that their lives bump up against via service-learning. This chapter, therefore, argues for, and summons serious service-learning practitioners to, a new conversation regarding the immense challenges (and rewards) faced by professors and students when service-learning succeeds.
