Spirituality

Unit code: DS3020L

Description

This unit explores the Lutheran pattern of spirituality within its historical, cultural and ecclesial context. Attention is given to how Christian spirituality is affected by understandings of personal experience, as well as to the contextual role played by contemporary Australian society. A biblical theology of spirituality will be developed that focuses on a number of factors: its Trinitarian basis, its personal yet corporate nature, and its close connection with the life of sanctification as outlined in the New Testament. There is a strong focus on understanding and more deeply appropriating a number of personal and corporate spiritual disciplines. Opportunity is also made to explore selected spiritual practices of other Christian traditions.
