About the Course
This course is designed to introduce students to the formal practice of Spiritual Direction. Recognizing that the term Spiritual Direction or Discernment may be new for some and have different meanings depending on the religious context, this course will explore the rich history of Christian Spiritual Discernment and how it is practiced in modern society. We will discuss biblical passages where discernment was exercised and consider what the theological implications of same are. Finally, we will explore the benefits of Spiritual discernment and direction and how God uses it as a form of divine providence and self-disclosure; all a part of the broader theological picture of God’s redemptive work in the earth.
