Everyday Deeds of Ordinar y Folk: How the Theology of J.R.R. Tolkien Can Help You to Better Serve St udents

"\;Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check. But that is not what I have found. I'v e found it is the small things\, everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep s the darkness at bay. Simple acts of kindness and love. "\; - Gandalf the Grey\, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

The realm o f Middle Earth created by J.R.R Tolkien is full of peril and trial. Allian ces are broken then to be re-forged in the free people's desperate hour to combat evil and corruption and save the land from the ruin of Sauron. But it is also a world full of courage\, bravery\, loyalty and hope\; a hope which comes from the most unexpected of places or creatures: Hobbits.

Exploring some of these themes and beloved characters\, this presentation will demonstrate that the deeply theological themes that Tolk ien embedded in his works have tangible and practical application in our d aily interactions with the students we serve providing a realistic and ben eficial framework from which we can demonstrate our faith at work (whichev er faith system that may be).

A Christian theologian and scholar himself\, Tolkien was very purposeful in creating a world deeply r ooted in his faith tradition\, but not so obvious or brashly evangelistic that it would be off putting to his readers. While his friend and colleagu e C.S. Lewis thought the imagery and metaphor should be blatantly obvious in fictional writing\, Tolkien took a multifaceted\, layered approach crea ting languages\, mythology\, ancestry and deep history that served as the foundation for the epic story he told in the Hobbit and The Lord of the Ri ngs. It is from this place of complexity and a bit of mystery that we will explore what guiding principles can be gleaned from this story and utiliz ed in our epic work to educate and empower students to go out into the wor ld and help to keep the darkness at bay.
