Heartland Center for Spirituality in Great Bend will hold SpiritLife classes on Saturday April 26, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Classes for the day are as follows:
9:30 a.m. - The Age of the Laity, presented by Renee Dreiling OP.
Vatican Council II called all the laity, the baptized people of God, to work for the transformation of the world. It specified that as they share in the function of Christ, priest, prophet, and king, they are to have an active part of their own in the life and activity of the Church. Furthermore their activity within the Church communities is so necessary that without it the apostolate of the pastors will frequently be unable to obtain its full effect!
10:55 a.m. - Daniel Helminiak’s Four Viewpoints, presented by Philip St. Romain, D. Min.
One of the great gifts of Daniel Helminiak is to explain the teachings of Bernard Lonergan, S.J., the great 20th century philosopher-theologian. This class will review some of the basic contours of Lonergan’s approach with special emphasis on what Helminiak calls the four viewpoints or perspectives on reality.
2 p.m. Rule of Life: Act in Accordance with What Matters Most, presented by Philip St. Romain, D Min.
Today we review your Mission Statement in which you named what really matters most/ what is supremely important to you. We will be guided to translate this mission statement into an action plan considering one’s roles and naming one’s goals. We will include these personal developmental dimensions: physical, spiritual, mental and social/emotional. By balancing one’s life around one’s various roles and including all four personal dimensions, we harmonize our activities with our deepest values.
Day rate is $50, which includes lunch; Friday overnight with breakfast plus day is $75. Semester rates are available for commuters and overnight.
