Spiritual Practices: Prayer and Scripture CHM503E

Instructor: Rachel Miller Jacobs, DMin

With the Bible as primary textbook and prayer as primary practice, this class explores the intersection between text and formation for both individuals and groups. What does scripturesaturated personal and corporate prayer look like? How might we pray scripture through memory, movement, and music, either by ourselves or in small groups, Sunday school classes, spiritual friendships, and family life? Over the course of a semester, we will experience and experiment with a variety of ways of praying and sinking deeply into scripture as well as leading others in doing so.
