Heartland Center for Spirituality in Great Bend will hold SpiritLife classes from 9 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21. Classes for the day are as follows:
9:30 a.m. Biblical Spirituality - 2, by Renee Dreiling OP: The parables of Jesus enable us to look anew at our lives and the decisions we make. They also challenge us to be transformed. We’ll look at the parables and some of the other sayings of Jesus in the light of historical criticism and social customs of Jesus’ day. A short look at narrative criticism, rhetorical criticism and allegorical interpretation will follow.
10:55 a.m. Personal Spirituality: three approaches, by Philip St. Romain, D. Min.: Following up from the previous class, we will take a closer look at different kinds of intrapersonal spiritual development, or what is sometimes called personal spirituality. We will identify three distinct lines -- psychological, metaphysical, and religious -- and reflect on how they intermingle as we grow.
2 p.m. Principles of Discernment, by Ann Axman: We will overview St. Ignatius’ “Rules for Discernment,” seeing how they are applicable in our everyday life as we are attentive to the movement of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Day rate: $50 (includes lunch); $75 for Friday overnight (includes breakfast) plus day.
Semester rates are available for commuters and overnight.
