The Influence of the Rule of Benedict on Anglican & Protestant Spirituality

Offered in Fall 2009  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2008 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course is based on the argument that Anglicanism is best understood not as a denomination that grew out of the Reformation, but as a continuation of the early church which has been shaped profoundly by monastic spirituality - in particular, English Benedictine spirituality. As we examine the influence of the Rule of St. Benedict on Anglican spirituality and the development of ecumenical communities of faith, we will work with several inter-twining strands: the ways in which the spirituality of Benedictine monasticism has shaped Anglicanism (including its liturgy and ecclesiology); the continuing influence of Benedictine monasticism, evident in the unprecedented contemporary interest of Anglicans and lay people of all Christian traditions; and the ways in which the Rule of Benedict can inform a healthy communal and personal spirituality today, both within the Anglican communion and across denominations. Slide lectures, small group and plenary discussion. Reflection papers, research paper and either a written and oral book review or participation in a Benedictine Experience Weekend at St. John's Convent Oct. 31 - Nov. 2.

Facilitating Forgiveness and Reconciliation in the Church and in the World

Offered in Fall 2009  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2008 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Forgiveness and reconciliation are central to the gospel message and virtues that mark Christian maturity. Recognizing them as virtues does not automatically translate into an ability to recover from relationship hurts, and people may then turn to a clergyperson or lay leader in the church for help in getting from a place of hurt and anger to one of acceptance and closure. This course is designed to assist students in their efforts to acquire the knowledge, wisdom and skills they need, first to embody the virtues themselves and then to facilitate others

Homiletical Options

Offered in Fall 2009  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2007 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course is designed to help advanced students gain a grasp of contemporary options in homiletic theory. While a brief introduction to the background of the field in its present state will be part of the course, for the most part students will become familiar with the work of those figures in the field who have embraced what some have called 'the new homiletic'. While these figures represent a great variety of theoretical positions, the one thing that comes closest to uniting them is the so-called 'turn to the hearer'. As a result, students will leave this course with a good grasp of the field of contemporary homiletic theory, an appreciation for the revolution in preaching method of the last thirty years, and a sense of the 'theological turns' that may be emerging out of it.

Competency interview and integration paper. Pass/Fail course. **Pre-requisite: Practicum in Spiritual Direction RGP6661H, Retreat in Everyday Life RGP6248Y, RGP6687H and RGP6688H.

Ecological Consciousness & Cultural Value

Offered in Fall 2009  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

The environmental crisis is a spiritual crisis. The social dialectic, that is, practicality/instrumentality in tension with the intersubjective component of community, has become a skewed global phenomenon primarily because of technological/communications, economic, and political realities, along with the consequences of massive human migration and environmental destruction. What are cultural values and ultimately, religious values, that can redirect the social order toward a renewed human community living harmoniously/authentically with earth and cosmos? The structure of converted ecological consciousness, incarnating cultural values informed by Transcendent value, can evoke a humble, blessed way of "walking on the earth." Teaching method: Lecture. Evaluation: Class participation, special topic presentation, final paper.
