In this course we will seek to develop a robust account of the biblical teaching on creation that can guide the life and witness of God’s people. Many of the most pressing issues today in pastoral care and public witness relate to biblical teaching on creation: food, economics, various forms of abuse, health care, justice, famine, drought, embodiment, sexuality, genetic testing and “therapies,” race, poverty, and more.
Yet because the church and theology abandoned the doctrine of creation about 250 years ago we have a very weak account of creation for guiding our life and witness. Due to this neglect of creation, the church has been malnourished doctrinally and manifests that malnourishment in many diseases.
We will identify some of those diseases and reintroduce creation into the church’s diet so that we may regain some health for living and witnessing faithfully to the good news of God’s redemption of creation. As an integral part of this work, we will develop pastoral and missional responses to the pressing issues of our day.
Topic: Preaching, Teaching & Healing
The writers of the four gospels (especially Matthew and Luke) regularly summarize Jesus’ earthly ministry around the verbs preaching, teaching, and healing. Jesus came preaching – the kingdom of God has come near! Jesus came teaching – the kingdom of God is like. Jesus came healing – because the kingdom whose nearness He announces and whose dynamics He explains, is a kingdom of wholeness.
In this seminar, we will grapple with the main gospel texts that present Jesus as healer, as the One Who puts us back together again. We will wrestle with the hard questions the affirmation that Jesus heals raises in our lives, in our ministries, in this world. We will think together about the ministry of preaching and teaching as a ministry of healing. And we will pray together, for one another, for those we love and serve, and for our city in need of the healing only Jesus brings.
In the long history of Christianity various forms of intentional community have existed alongside of the parish church. This course explores the theology and praxis of such communities, including Monasticism, Anabaptist and Moravian communities, contemporary communities amongst Roman Catholics and Protestants and the New Monasticism.
This is a combined course for both doctoral and masters students. The instructor is Dr. Charles Ringma. Doctoral students attend June 16-20, 2014 and the course is DMPM942. Masters students attend June 16-19, 2014 and the course is APPL567.
Audit students are welcome! Audit fee is $480

About the “Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
The “Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius” are a very profound engagement and re-dedication of our lives to the work of Christ in us, and in the world.
In the Spiritual Exercises, five sessions are given in which a progressive appreciation of our relationship and commitment to God’s purposes is encouraged. This retreat will begin each day with a time of contemplative prayer. A teaching time related to the prayer exercises for that day will then follow. In the afternoons you will be on your own to practice these prayers. There will also be opportunities for personal spiritual direction each day related to the exercises. And each evening we will come together again for debriefing and a compline liturgy.Date: Monday-Saturday August 18-23 2014 Time: Monday evening anytime after dinner- Saturday at 4:00 Cost: $375 (includes catered meals from Tuesday breakfast-Saturday lunch) Accommodation: rooms may be booked for an additional fee via Reception at 604.224.4308 for up to $84/room with a %10 discount available if booked by June 19.

Churches and communities are experiencing an unprecedented ministry challenge and opportunity over the next 25-40 years in responding to an aging population. There needs to be a more cooperative and informed approach to discerning, planning and resourcing local church ministries to serve the varied needs of older adults and their families. This symposium aims to bring together participants for consultation and mutual encouragement through plenary input sessions, guided discussion, resourcing workshops and other network building activities. The topics and issues addressed will be helpful for either those currently involved or those interested in developing new and connecting ministries with older adults. Pastors, church leaders, health/social care professionals and anyone interested in learning about and making a contribution to this emerging missional challenge and opportunity are encouraged to attend.
* We are encouraging you and others from your church to plan to join us for a time of networking, consultation and vision formation, as we respond to this emerging ministry/mission challenge and opportunity. Watch here for more information over the coming weeks.
Dr. Paul Pearce, Dr. Paul Stevens, and Rev. Fay Puddicombe
