Check this out for spiritual growth!
Yesterday I promised that I would say more about my International Online Program in Spirituality Studies. It is time to offer this opportunity for real spiritual growth and here is what it is all about and I hope you are interested or will help me find the right students for September.
St. Thomas University's School of Theology and Ministry offers an Online International Certificate Program in Spirituality Studies. It covers the history of Christian Spirituality in four courses. For each course students read great spiritual classics from New Testament times to Contemporary Spirituality. Students enroll from all over the world providing exciting and rich dialogue. There are no tests or papers, but a brief summary is posted at the end of each Unit. The courses are 12 weeks; the first, New Testament Spirituality and the Early Fathers begins September 8, 2009. For more information please contact Dr. Helen Rosenthal, rscj at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to http://www.stu.edu/spiritual-studies-online-article-2851.html
Cost: Only $300 per course.
Hopefully, this information will bring students for a great experience!
For reflection today I took the refrain of Psalm 103 from the liturgy:
"The Lord is kind and merciful."
I also took the first line of the first reading from James: "Do not complain, brothers and sisters, about one another, that you may not be judged."
I will try to live today without a single discontent! It is a real challenge, but helps one to live in joy!
