|SF 591||Dynamics of Spiritual Life||G. Adams||Online||May 18 – August 14|
This course explores the implications that examining the world through the lens of story and its structure has for our understanding of the Scriptures and of the Christian life and provides students with related principles and tools—from the riches of church history—to use in spiritual formation.
Drawing on the biblical Creation-Redemption narrative, the course trains students in LifeStory Exegesis™, a model of Christian spirituality that can be used in personal renewal, spiritual formation, direction, discipleship, mentoring, and counseling. Combining theological reflection, historical analysis, literary theory, film, and practical application, it explores key spiritual dynamics, equipping persons for ministry to those seeking a deeper life with Christ. Issues of discovering one’s design and calling, effectively facing challenges and suffering, dealing with core lies, equipping for power encounters, and growing in attentiveness to God will be dealt with in an integrated model. LifeStory Exegesis™ can also be used to gain a deeper understanding of the unique DNA and particular challenges of churches and organizations (nonprofits, etc.).
