Pastorale Professionalität in pluralen Verhältnissen: Praktisch-theologische Überlegungen zur akademischen Ausbildung für den Pfarrberuf


Schlag, Thomas (2015). Pastorale Professionalität in pluralen Verhältnissen: Praktisch-theologische Überlegungen zur akademischen Ausbildung für den Pfarrberuf. Pastoraltheologische Informationen, 35(1):97-110.

Abstract

Angesichts der immer komplexer werdenden Anforderungen und Erwartungen an den Pfarrberuf, die
durch die gegenwärtige Kompetenzdiskussion eine zusätzliche Steigerung erfahren, ist es notwendig,
das Kerngeschäft und damit auch die inhaltliche Grundlegung pastoraler Professionalität intensiver als
bisher theologisch zu bedenken. Plädiert wird dafür, sowohl die berufliche Praxis wie auch die Ausbildung
zentral von einer theologisch-bildungstheoretischen Perspektive aus in den Blick zu nehmen.
Denn erst vor diesem Horizont kann die öffentliche Bedeutung des Pfarramts im Kontext der gegenwärtigen
pluralen Welt- und Gesellschaftsverhältnisse sowie ihre promissionale Deutungsaufgabe
angemessen bestimmt und reflektiert werden.


Everyone who aims at becoming a pastor today, is faced with complex outside demands and expectations
that are attached to this office. In addition, the current discussion regarding competence and
skills heightens the sense that this work demands from a person more than ever before. This article
argues that there needs to be an intense theological reflection about both the essence of the pastoral
office and the work performed by a pastor and the actual content on which the pastoral profession is
based. The author suggests that both the work of the pastor itself as well as the education needs to be
based on a theological perspective that takes the theories of professional education seriously. Only
then, the public importance of the pastoral profession in the context of plurality can be identified and
reflected. Only then, the candidate for pastoral office can be made aware of the divine promise attached
to this office and to the deep knowledge that, at the end, he or she is led by a godly power and
higher meaning.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
