Integrating Contemplation and Action in Daily Life
Extends the art and discipline of formative spirituality to a renewed appreciation for the wealth of texts available to us in Holy Scripture and the spiritual classics. Special attention is given to formative reading and journaling as well as to related practices that nurture the contemplative life. This culminating course in the program enhances one's sensitivity to life-call questions, growth in prayer, and dedication to ministry in such areas as spiritual direction, teaching, counseling, and mentoring. The culminating project involves the preparation of a guided reading program for those whom the students already serve or plan to serve in the near future.
