Missional Spirituality

WYP2209HS  L0101
Offered in Winter 2015  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2014 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

A missional spirituality is, "an attentive and active engagement of embodied love for God and neighbour expressed from the inside out." (Helland and Hajalmarson, 2011). In modern spiritualties the interior life of personal devotion is emphasised. A needed corrective is our recovery of the outward movement of God into the world: missio Dei. The life of devotion and mission are inseparable. We are formed by the Spirit in community for the sake of others, where inner life both forms and feeds mission. Requirements include book reviews, a reflective journal, and an integrative paper.

This course is open to all basic degree students and is a required course for Wycliffe students in the MDIV Pioneer stream.
