Spiritual Practices: Intentional Living in an Age of Diversions CHM599

Instructor: Andy Brubacher Kaethler, PhD

This course seeks to reclaim focused, intentional living by developing a pattern for daily life modeled after the life and practices of Jesus Christ, including regular practices of worship; fellowship and hospitality; work and reflection; Sabbath and rest; and holy play. We will develop language, concepts, and habits by which to evaluate the role that technology plays in permeating and distorting our relationships with God, with community, and with creation. The course requires commitment to daily Christian practices, moderate reading and writing, and weekly group reflection.
