Come and be refreshed in body, mind and spirit! This course will explore a variety of Christian perspectives on the Holy Spirit through history and in contemporary contexts. Together we will explore questions such as these: in Christian faith and Scripture, who is the Holy Spirit? How does one discern the Spirit amidst the spirits? What is the relationship between Jesus and the Spirit? What is Christian life lived in the power of the Spirit?

Session titles include:

  • Breath of Life: The Spirit and Creation
  • Spirit of Christ: The Word and the Spirit
  • Fire of Pentecost: The Spirit and the Church
  • Bond of Love: The Spirit and Works of Justice and Mercy
