The course will alternate between theological reflection on the historical significance of Christian spirituality in the practice of the Churches and the experiential understanding of Christian spiritual disciplines as embraced as a means of sanctification for individuals and congregations. A one-day retreat will be one portion of the course. The course is understood as a workshop with a sharing of gifts, skills, ideas, and expertise from all members, with each being asked to contribute in an atmosphere of mutuality where all are assumed to be teachers and learners togehter. There will be little in the way of lecture, with most sessions given to dialogue around readings and diverse experience. All group norms will be expected to apply throughout.
