A relaxed pace (one film every two weeks) + a reduced load (watch a synopsis of a film if you don’t have time to watch the whole thing) + a critical eye (to the ways spiritual themes play in the movies) + a safe place to share (facilitated by a certified spiritual director): Put them together and you have the basis of this course that explores key themes of Christian spirituality and spiritual formation through the lens of Hollywood classics. Every two weeks, learners will engage a different film synopsis (key scenes, “cleaned up” as necessary) then discuss spiritual themes seen in each film via a live/recorded Zoom lecture and discussion board conversations. Films include the “Godfather” trilogy, “The Matrix,” “The Way,” “Chocolat,” and “Tender Mercies.”
