Professor Drea Fröchtling Studied Theology in Germany and in South Africa. Her favorite subjects were those that addressed real life and justice issues from a Christian perspective, human rights and political justice.
What attracted Drea to FIT, and still is an attraction to her, is the high level of diversity and the enormous level of dedication that students at FIT have. “To me, theology and the social practice of the church, diakonia, is something that requires both: Intercultural and diverse approaches and passion. And I experience FIT as one of the most passionate places I ever worked.”.🌿
Many things are memorable to her. The people, encounters and dialogues, events and everyday life as a community makes the place special to her. “Some time ago, one of the students left a poem with me at his graduation day. It read: FIT - may well be an acronym for ‚fabulous intercultural training‘, or for ‚fight inhumanity together‘, or for ‚find innovative theology-cum-praxis‘. Whatever FIT stands for: For me it is and will remain part of my journey towards justice and peace.“ She can subscribe to that. For her as well, FIT is part of a journey, continuously changing, continuously re-forming, continuously seeking.🙌
For the new semester professor Drea worked on issues of counseling in the context of migration, preparing for the upcoming counseling module. ——————
