The Biotechnology Reference Group of The Canadian Council of Churches has published a curriculum with tools for Christian communities to critically assess the opportunities and risks of biotechnology.
The resource explores questions like – Does genetics contribute to or contradict our belief that we are created in the image of God? What ethical questions arise from usage of genetics in reproductive technologies? Is genetic testing for those planning to have children a responsible thing to do?
This curriculum can be used as a series of workshops or a full day session for communal reflection on how to meet the challenges of these new technologies. Are you interested in taking on the important work as facilitator for this curriculum? Are you willing to be a participant in this shared learning program? Let us assist your community in exploring this exciting and timely curriculum!
