This course will invite students to explore the nature of their own spiritual formation and to cultivate an awareness of the Divine presence and action in every dimension of life. Through readings from multiple faith traditions, audio and film resources, discussion, reflection, and a variety of experiential activities we will consider the practices, struggles, and commitments that deepen and nourish our souls. We will look at the role of spirituality in ministry, and the impacts that the demands of ministry can have on our spirituality. We will examine the importance of developing an ongoing spiritual discipline to foster balance, integrity and vitality in our relationships with God, self, family, congregation, community, and world.
This course is High Residential Only
