This course is a part of a certification in Spiritual Formation from the Institute for Discipleship. It can be completed on its own or as a part of the certification: After defining “Spiritual Formation” from various angles and perspectives, this course will survey spiritual disciplines.

There will be a special focus on the importance of a balanced theology (affirming divine initiative and human responsibility) in a healthy understanding of the spiritual disciplines. From there, we’ll discuss how these disciplines can be employed toward personal and parish renewal, and how temperaments and personalities make a difference. In the spiritual life, “one size (or template) does not fit all.” Therefore, there is a need to be attentive to the unique configuration or wiring of each soul and congregation.

Finally, we’ll turn our attention to the development of a “Rule” for faithful living as well as the ways we might define “pathways” for devotion and discipline in various settings. This course is eligible for 3.0 CEU. Enroll Now! Price: $125
