Ways of Praying (DTHY 4565)


Looking to further develop your prayer life, but would like some guidance? Would you like to learn how to pray from the saints of the Christian tradition?

This course will offer students an opportunity to identify more clearly their own way of praying, to ponder various methods and to sympathetically understand ways practised by other people.

Various types of prayer will be examined: in the Bible, in St. Thomas Aquinas, among Eastern Orthodox Christians, among modern prayerful people, Catholic and Protestant. Spiritual and psychological aspects of maturing in prayer will also be discussed.

The course is suitable for Christians interested in developing their life of prayer. Working professionals, retired individuals, and students are all welcome. The course can be taken for credit or as an auditor.

Fees: $160 (regular) ; $120 (persons 60 years or older)
