Living According to the Word: Reformed Spirituality
Program Date(s): 2011
Course Instructor: Eric O. Springsted (Company of Teachers)
What is involved in the lived knowledge of God? What does it mean to say, as Calvin did, that “nearly all the wisdom we possess consists of the knowledge of God and of ourselves?” This course will look at how beliefs and practices are linked in the Reformed tradition. While it will deal with Reformed spirituality historically, it will chiefly be concerned with what it means to live as a Reformed believer now — of what we can do to recover the vitality of the Word of God in church and personal life. Topics will include prayer, worship, sacraments, vocation, intellectual life, and communal life.
