Unfolding the Mystery: Spirituality Program Celebrates 15th Anniversary
Celebrate, give thanks, and reunite – for worship, workshops, meals, refreshments, and conversation, during the celebration of the 15th anniversary of the Spirituality Program in Columbia Theological Seminary’s Center for Lifelong Learning, Friday evening and Saturday – September 17-18, 2010.
You’re not alone in this. I want you woven into a tapestry of love,
in touch with everything there is to know of God.
Colossians 2:2 (The Message)
“The Spirituality Program has been foundational and transformative in the spiritual lives of hundreds,” says Tom Lewis, program director. “Join us to celebrate and give thanksgiving to God for weaving together a rich and diverse community.”
Speakers and worship leaders are Steve Hayner, Julie Johnson, Paul and Sarah Lang, Ben Johnson, and Tom Lewis.
For more than a decade, Columbia and Pittsburgh seminaries have partnered to offer courses leading to the Certificate in Spiritual Formation, a journey through which modern-day, world-weary pilgrims may quench their spiritual thirst.
The Certificate in Spiritual Formation offers people in the pulpit, in the pew, in all denominations and stages of life, an exploration of community-grounded Christian spirituality that is rooted in scripture, theology, a history of the tradition, reading in the spiritual classics, prayer and meditation, and in skills for assisting others on a spiritual journey.
Participants learn spiritual practices experientially, and, at the same time, develop skills for helping others in their spiritual growth.
As seminary faculty members and other carefully selected, experienced teachers guide participants through structured study, they discover the relationship in Christian spirituality between compassion, justice, and effective ministry.
