2015 ATLANTA COURSE OFFERINGS

Greetings, Spring Hill College is pleased to offer course work in theological studies in Atlanta. This provides an accessible means for educators and those in other ministries to achieve academic credits or personal enrichment. JUN 19-21, 2015 (Intensive Weekend Format) – Weekend 1 When Was I Less by Dying? The Spirituality of Rumi Dr. John Switzer, SPT571/471 (Historical) (1, 2 or 3 credit hours) About the same time that Thomas Aquinas died, another spiritual master departed the world: Jalaledeen Muhammed Rumi, a Persian mystic whose writings and poetry continue to be read in the West as well as the East. Centuries after his death, he remains a best-selling author. In this course we will read some of his most influential poetry and seek to discover the timeless truths that these writings have to offer to the Christian soul. Students must earn the first credit during the Institute in the classroom.  Credits two and three will be available online, following the classroom-based course.   JUN 26-28, 2015  – Weekend 2 Parables of Jesus Dr. Timothy Carmody, SPT531/431 (Biblical) (1 credit hour) To hear the Parables of Jesus is to experience the dynamics of the spiritual journey – some parables describe the whole journey; others only one aspect of it.  Using the methodologies of social science criticism, narrative criticism, and story spirituality, the course will foster participation in the mystery of the kingdom of God.
