About this course
We are living in a time where we are drawn into a tsunami of rapid socio-economic and technological changes. Education institutions are in taters, seminaries are in retreat against the onslaught of emerging technologies, and churches are empting of the younger generations seeking to be ‘spiritual but not religious’. In a time of fluidity and change, is it possible to nurture healthy spiritual growth? Is it possible to develop into Christlikeness, become a people of God, and helps in the expansion of His kingdom in this postmodern secular world?
Christianity has weather more than two millennium of such climatic changes and each time, Christians has weathered these changes and nurtured deep spiritual growth in very adverse conditions. This course will examine the dynamics of spiritual growth (spiritual formation) in two sessions (Saturdays). The theme for the first session is drinking from deep wells where we will examine the nature of spiritual formation, and how it will lead us to know God, and to know ourselves better. The second session will be drinking from dry wells – about nurturing spiritual growth in our hectic, hurried, stressed-out lives in the marketplace, workplace, home, church, or schools.
