Theology Is for Everyone – Introduction

It's easy to think that the study of theology is only for pastors and Bible professors, but that's not true! Theology is for everyone who walks in a church and thinks thoughts and speaks words about God. And, we want to be good theological thinkers, regardless of our role in the church.

In the introduction to his “Theology Is for Everyone” video series, Dr. Jeremy Kimble, Associate Professor of Theology at Cedarville University, answers three key questions:

  1. What is theology?
  2. How do we do theology?
  3. Why should we study theology?

The Unseen Pandemic Impacting Healthcare Providers

Burnout and work-related stress are not new issues in health care. But according to the September 2022 Journal of American Medicine, the COVID-19 pandemic has poured kerosene on that fire, leading health care professionals to work under increasingly difficult conditions. In particular, pharmacists were called upon to drive patient care during the pandemic, without changes to their typical job function. Economic forces and personnel shortages have further impacted care.

Such conditions have led to what many are calling the “Great Resignation.” In health care, this has manifested as an exodus of health care workers from frontline patient care roles. For example, according to Elsevier Health, 31% of physicians and nurses globally said they planned to leave their current role in the next two-to-three years.

Looking at respondents from the United States, that number is even higher — 47%. In 2021, the Ohio Board of Pharmacy reported that 16% of Ohio pharmacists reported planning to leave their career as a pharmacist altogether, while 40% of respondents indicated they were open to changing careers in the future. This is alarming, as many pharmacists already operate in health care deserts where options for patients are few.

Something must change, but what?

Spiritual Abuse in Relationships

Today’s post is from Celeste Hurley, Cedarville University's Confidential Advocate from Family Violence Prevention Center.

woman pushing man awayPhilippians 2:3-5 “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:”

One tactic that is used to gain power and control in a relationship is spiritual abuse. Spiritual abuse happens when someone uses spiritual or religious beliefs to hurt, scare, or control you. This could be accomplished through forcing someone to follow a particular religious script, restricting or mocking someone's beliefs, or using beliefs to limit and control the other person. This additionally impacts a person by isolating them from who Christ is and what it means to be loved in a genuine and noncontractual way.

M.B.A. in Innovation and Entrepreneurship Answers "Why?" for Engineer

My mechanical engineering degree gave me the tools I needed to bring value to the field, but I never developed a passion for the coursework. Industry tends to push engineers into project management for their logical thinking and skill with numbers. I knew I wasn’t where I wanted to be and felt unprepared for the business demands of project management. Rarely satisfied with my career, I felt trapped by the decisions of a naïve 18-year-old.
