    Addiction and Faith Community

    Ahn, Kyung Seung | 2010, 15() | pp.105~133 | number of Cited : 7
    Abstract PDF
    Addiction is not only a social problem but a Christian problem. Faith community can be a healing resource for addiction and social system to care people recovering from addiction. To demonstrate the need of communal approach to addiction, we will examine the spiritual,relational, characteristic aspects of addiction. Because addiction is a very complex condition, many experts call for an integrated approach. In the same way, ignoring the spiritual dimension leads to partial solutions. The objects of attachments are our idols, substitutes for the God and other human being we have rejected. And people with addiction have a distorted personality. The end result is a destructive pattern of abusing substances, people, or things to which we become adjusted. Ultimately the Christian faith is about transformation through relationship in faith community. We will emphasis that restoration springs from the healing context of faith community. The climate which nurtures such healing community has two Christian qualities which are Christ centered relation and confession, and three relational qualities which are availability,acceptance, and authenticity. Healing relationships are found in that community where grace and truth meet.

    Christian Counseling Approach for Forgiveness of Couples on the Verge of Extramarital Affairs

    Hae Soon Jeong | Hahn Sook Ja | 2010, 15() | pp.221~252 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This study examines how the Bible sees extramarital affairs, and how christian counsellors look at the affairs and give advice to troubled couples, based on the repentance and confession of spouses who had affairs, and forgiveness between such couples. Forgiveness is a human behavior that follows the God’s unconditional love and blessing toward human beings. However, it is never easy to forgive each other between a couple who, or at least one party, had an extramarital affair, and thus christian counsellors should refrain from urging or forcing hasty forgiveness. Counsellors patiently help heartbroken couples fully express their emotion, and recognize and accept their situation through emphasizing, listening and accepting their emotion. In the course of the process, counsellors introduce techniques,such as how to communicate and how to address reminders that trigger bad memories about spouses􀁳affairs. Christian counsellors are not responsible for punishing a spouse who had an affair on behalf of the other, but humbly praying to God to forgive their unforgivable sins and praying to the Holy Spirit to participate in the counselling sessions to help the couples.

    The Living Human Web and Pastoral/ Practical Theology of Bonnie Miller-McLemore.

    Ha, Jae Sung | 2010, 15() | pp.253~278 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    Dr. Bonnie Miller-McLemore, a feminist pastoral theologian at Vanderbilt University, has replaced a long-standing metaphor of Anton Boisen's "Living Human Documents" in pastoral theology with "The Living Human Web." The replacement means more than a simple extension of a research object from an individual person to his or her surrounding relational environments. It is true that "the Living Human Web" as a new paradigmatic metaphor excels the scope of individualistic psychology. However, the metaphor also signals a radical shift of pastoral/practical theological method from a correlational method to a revised correlational method between theology and science. Miller-McLemore has been actively engaged with feminist theories and social sciences, but she consistently pursues resources of healing of the web from the biblical and theological tradition. She employs and maintains a mutually critical method when she has to utilize social sciences according to the declared motto in order to fulfill its ideals.
