Spirituality Class: Praying on Planet Earth
Theological education addresses the mind, as well as, matters of the heart. To this end, you will take courses that introduce spirituality and the spiritual disciplines, especially prayer. These disciplines aid in cultivating both private and corporate means for spiritual development.
In addition to providing courses in spirituality the seminary community worships and prays together. Opportunities are available for special workshops and periodic retreats to help students in their spiritual formation and to facilitate their developing spiritual resources necessary for effective practice of ministry.
Dr. Stephen Brachlow, Professor of Spirituality, leads students to focus on the importance of prayer, meditation, and quiet reflection and how they impact our spiritual life.
“Prayer is ultimately not our work, but the work of the Spirit in us. It brings about a new vision of the world, so that we see things as God intends us to see them. The crucial question is: Where is God in our lives as they are, not as we think they should, or wish they could be?”
-Dr. Stephen Brachlow
