Integrating Life and Faith
Integrating Life and Faith, The Craighead Institute, Glasgow
This course is for anyone who wants to reflect on the integrity of their faith with their daily living and to respond accordingly. It is particularly relevant to parishes developing lay leadership and works well in an ecumenical context also. It explores the role of Christians as citizens in society and the ways in which, inspired by the Gospel, we can make a difference. Rooted in Ignatian Spirituality, the course seeks to provide an opportunity for adult Christians to deepen their faith and to explore how such faith is lived out in the reality of today’s world – in our relationships, our families, our homes, in the workplace and the events of everyday life.
The four modules of Integrating Life and Faith are:
Module One: Trust Building and Communication Skills
Module Two: Christianity and Social Concern
Module Three: The Word of God in Scripture, Life and Community
Module Four: Ignatian Prayer, Discernment, Action
Each of the four modules of ILF takes place either as a Saturday and two evening sessions or over two days (Saturday and Sunday) from 9.30 am – 4.30 pm with a gap of 6 – 10 weeks between modules. During each of these gaps, participants undertake to meet three times with a small group of fellow participants in order to review the work of the module just completed and to deepen their experience of Integrating Life and Faith.
Recent research indicates that Integrating Life and Faith deepens people’s individual and collective Christian identity and helps them to be confident in making a contribution to society. For more information on when this course is running in 2018 please contact The Craighead Institute.
