Pastoral Ministry and Christian Spiritual Direction
- Course Dates: Mon 29 February 2016, 2:00 pm to Thu 3 March 2016, 5:00 pm
This module enables students to explore approaches to pastoral ministry and spiritual direction within the Christian tradition.
It presents them with different models of pastoral care and encourages them to reflect theologically on these models, placing them in their historical context.
Students will explore issues of particular concern for pastoral ministry in the contemporary context and engage with non-theological disciplines that provide pastoral care. Students will be introduced to different approaches to spiritual direction within the Christian tradition. They will consider the differences between counselling and spiritual direction at the same time as providing tools for the beneficial integration of both disciplines. The module will help students articulate models of spiritual transformation and development.
It is important to note that this module is not a training course either in spiritual direction or in counselling.
Those not on the MA programme are very welcome to book on this module as an auditor.
