This course provides a firm foundation for understanding the writings of the Major and Minor Prophets of the Old Testament tracing the rise of prophecy and the role of prophets through the period of Moses to the 2nd century BC. The course will set these writings within their historical context and their literary context in order to elucidate their unique message. The goal of the course is to instill a prophetic spirit within the student as they read these texts in order to interpret their world and confront their cultural setting and prevalent justice issues.
This is an online course which runs from September 8th to November 28th, 2014. The instructor is Dr. Craig Smith.

The Graduate Studies Orientation introduces the learning objectives of the degree program and prepares students to re-enter the academic world while remaining involved in practical ministry. It provides a foundation for the process of discernment of ministry gifts and skills, and the deepening of Christian character, which are integral to readiness for ministry. Various assessment tools are a part of this process.
Graduate Studies Orientation is open to all students entering graduate studies including the MASF and Diploma programs. All Master of Divinity Students are required to attend the Graduate Studies Orientation as soon as possible after admission.
The course runs online September 8th to November 28th, 2014. The intensive dates are Sept. 23-26, 2014.
Taught by Dr. Barbara Mutch | Vice President Academic, Charles Bentall Professor of Ministry | Director of the Doctor of Ministry Program
I admire Wendell Berry and Armand Gamache, I like snow shoeing and tulips and doing the NY Times crossword puzzle, I am formed by the poetry of Mary Oliver and the big skies of Saskatchewan. I love the opportunity to walk with men and women in a deepening life of God, and to explore together what it means to make a life in the way of Jesus. Hunting the connections between God’s Word and God’s people, cultivating a spirituality that sustains a life of following Jesus, and integrating beliefs with ministry practice are three areas which I am delighted to explore with others in learning contexts.
Offered by Regent College and Carey Theological College
You may also register as a seminar participant for any or all of the first three Saturdays.

Every ten seconds someone in North America becomes a senior. This demographic reality has inspired both fear and hope. In this course we will explore the challenges and opportunities of becoming a senior, including critical issues such as diminished energy, the search for significance, continuing to work after work, calling and service in the world and church. This course is designed to help those needing to address the issues of aging—whether seniors themselves or people working with seniors (e.g., pastors, counsellors, social workers)—from a Christian perspective. In light of the realities of aging, the course will address the issues of vocation, meaning and security, and spirituality. There will be lectures, case studies, interviews and guests. There are no prerequisites for the course and the experience can be attributed to a graduate program or simply be a learning encounter.
