PTM 142 A Literary Theology of Children & the Spiritual Senses

from 600.00

This course will explore Children's Spirituality and Moral Formation by way of models of spiritual formation for children that attend to spirituality as something latent within children, and paying special attention to the way in which children's literature also attends to this innate capacity.  Along the way, this course will introduce theological resources for thinking imaginatively and Scripturally about the formation of children.  Finally, this course will help students reflect on and develop resources for deepening the worship and formation of children in the parish by making connections to Godly Play and Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, both of which enjoy widespread usage in Episcopal and Anglican parishes.

The Rev. Dr. Daniel McClain.  3 credits.
