CTS Spiritual Formation

Creation Through a New Lens

April 7–10, 2022AdultContinuing Education
A Columbia Theological Seminary Center for Lifelong Learning event

This course is a biblical study of the multifaced wonder of the creation stories in Genesis 1 and 2. We will explore a variety of interpretive lenses regarding the creation narratives of Genesis and transfer them to other biblical literature. Participants will be invited to consider their current interpretive lenses and begin to see their own ‘true self’ and ‘God’s multifaceted self’ in biblical literature.

Everyone is welcome in this course. If you are attending for personal enrichment, we invite you to participate fully in the program, including the book reflections and integration paper following the course which are required for those seeking credit toward the Certificate in Spiritual Formation.
