THL-1009: Initiation to Christian Spirituality (3 crédits)Equivalent to: Initiation à la spiritualité chrétienne
An introduction to the Christian spiritual life from the Early Church till now. For two thousand years, Christians, empowered and moved by the Holy Spirit, have been praying and responding to God as revealed in Jesus Christ. The course finds its roots in Scripture and includes an examination of the human response to Christ, as empowered by the Spirit, under the limited conditions of our humanity. Through a combination of experiential and theoretical approaches, including a weekend formative retreat, the student is encouraged to assess and deepen his/her own spiritual journey. This survey of Christian spirituality is thematic and gives the student an opportunity to not only become familiar with the map of Christian spirituality but also to be exposed to resources, models and warnings that will help the student engage today’s culture with regards to spirituality.
