A person’s time/energy is one of the most valuable gifts of creation, yet sometimes a most neglected and abused resource available in our personal life and in the practice of ministry. Wise and effective use of our time/energy is not only a key to healthy self-care, but is a serious theological matter requiring focused spiritual discipline. Students will study the concepts of time, energy, and effectiveness from biblical perspectives and theological reflections on their own experience. They also will be given practical tools for assessing and developing more effective expenditure of their time/energy, be it in personal, family or corporate dimensions of life.
