Church History and Theology

  • This is the Spring edition of this course for 2017
  • This course provides philosophical perspectives and experiential learning opportunities that focus on adult learning for pastors, chaplains, teachers, ministry leaders, parish nurses and spiritual care providers. Please note: There is pre-requisite reading for this course.
  • The focus of this course will be spiritual formation and historical/cultural appreciation. We will seek to do this by exploring the theology and spiritual practice of pilgrimage as we walk an ancient pathway and meet other pilgrims from around the world. We will be walking from Leόn to Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain in fifteen days. Students will be responsible to make their own way to Leόn, arriving no later than Tuesday, May 9.
  • Spiritual Formation is the process of making space for the Holy Spirit’s work of transforming us into the likeness of Christ. This course introduces students to spiritual practices, grounded in the Christian tradition, that sustain and nurture a life-long pursuit of union with God.The course includes a prayer retreat. 3 Credits.
