Writing as Spiritual Practice
By Pam Wynn
March 6 – April 15, 2017
In this class, we focus on journal writing as a spiritual practice that mines our daily lives in the search for a deeper understanding of what it means to be human.
Writing as a spiritual practice is a centuries-old tradition that can help ground, sustain, and enhance our lives as people of faith. The process may plunge us into the depths of mystery; capture new insights into our faith; explore the terrain of our spiritual history; and, lead us forward as we strengthen our bond with the Creator. Employing a variety of approaches to keep our writing fresh, we explore both the shadow side of the human spirit as well as the side that radiates joy and light. In addition, we develop ways that we might utilize journal writing as a spiritual practice within a congregational setting.
The class will begin online on Monday, March 6 and will run through the week ending April 15, 2017. You’ll find new assignments posted to Moodle** each week; and there is a Community Forum on Moodle, where you can exchange ideas and thoughts with the other participants.
