CS101 : Christian Spirituality I: Foundations for Everyday Life (1.5 Credit)
Academic Year : 2020-2021
About this course
This course introduces important theological themes and provides a historical overview of the Christian spiritual tradition. As the title suggests, it is the Trinitarian and incarnational touchstones that give Christian spirituality its authentically Christian character. From this biblical and creedal basis, we will read, understand, and engage with the spiritual practices found in the various Christian traditions.
Particular emphasis is given to the Ignatian spirituality, as this serves as a preparatory framework to the spiritual practicum component in CS102. The trajectory of the course is for participants to draw from the deep well of Christian history, the appropriate spiritual disciplines that resonate with their own temperament, vacation, and season in life. It is hoped that this course will provide the resources for a deepening of self-knowledge and spirituality in everyday life.
The course aims to be both academic and practical. Besides live and recorded lectures, students engage with readings, group discussion, as well as individual reflections throughout the course. There will be in-depth discussions dealing with how can we grow deeper in our spiritual life in a busy world e.g. finding the rhythm between work and rest, cultivating the spiritual disciplines to keep one's spiritual life vibrant.
