Discussion Question 1
Recall the story of the homeless shelter in the micro-lecture. Do you think that it is an example of "practical theology?" What would Veling think?


Discussion Question 2
Veling resists settling on a clear "definition" of practical theology. What are the most important characteristics that he identifies to help describe it?


Discussion Question 3
From the descriptions of practical theology that Veling quotes from various authors on pages 19-22, pick one that you think is especially helpful for you as a student and minister. Why did you choose it?
