Auditing means you are not required to complete assignments and the professor will not be reviewing your work. We strongly recommend full participation for maximum value.
During the successful completion of this course, students will:
- Explore transition in the context of your personal narrative and God’s invitation to adventure in shaping the world.
- Develop a theology of work by studying biblical characters.
- Engage spiritual practices that strengthen your awareness of God’s presence each day as well as in making major decisions.
- Develop greater self-understanding through the Enneagram and other learning activities.
- Create a Rule of Life that acknowledges growing self-understanding and rhythms that will be helpful as an adult student.
- Make an oral presentation that weaves together your reflection on transition and calling in the life of a biblical character and explore how that story resonates with your own.
- Grow in confidence and abilities as an adult learner.
