Description

This course will explore the integration of spirituality and work (business, trades, professions, volunteer service and public service). In contrast with the dualistic approach (the upper level for the contemplative and the lower for the person engaging in a societal occupation) and the compartmentalization of Sunday from Monday, a fully biblical spiritual theology will be discovered as both applied and practical. The course will consider various approaches to integration, and the rich and diverse traditions of spirituality in the history of the people of God, especially the "mixed life." Further, issues raised in the workplace - work-life balance, success, ethics, failure, drivenness, ambition, and creativity - will be seen as opportunities to become a deeper person and to grow in faith, thus demonstrating that the journey inward and the journey outward are interdependent.
