Theological Reflection: Key to Connecting Faith and Life

Course Level: Basic

Course Summary

Too often faith is attended to only on Sundays. During the rest of the week, Sunday's wisdom and challenges, plus its understandings and right judgments, are often left untouched. This course introduces a way to go beneath day-to-day events to find meaning within them, to make decisions about them, and to invite an awareness of the abiding presence of God, any day of the week!

One of the powerful witnesses of Jesus the Son is that his life was completely intertwined with God the Father. Nothing separated him from his relationship with the Father, and his relationship with the Father influenced all that he did. This course seeks to assist its participants in taking on the ways of Gospel through theological reflection. What does it take to keep faith and life integrated? How can we do that specifically? What is gained when we do? This is a course that answers those questions and at the same time provides ecclesial leaders some skills to facilitate theological reflection in groups. Finally, for those responding to a call from God to be leaders within the Christian community, this course will offer a method by which to lead that sets ecclesial leadership apart from leadership in other organizations.

Successful completion of this course earns 1.5 CEU's.
