  • The Art of Living Intentionally
    (a 4-week, self-paced online course, launching on January 11, 2021)
    facilitated by Jim Reiter,
    Professionally Certified in Spiritual Formation
What Building upon August 2020’s Ruminations (focused on “Intentional Living” and “Rules for Faithful Living”), this four-week, self-paced study:

  • posits that all humans live by some sense of rhythms and rituals (that is, we all have “rules for living”)
  • introduces students to historic examples of rules for faithful living
  • explores the nature of such rules
  • engages the basics of crafting such a rule for our own life and living
  • Introduction to the Enneagram
    (a 4-week, self-paced online course, launches Monday, January 18, 2021)
    co-facilitated by
    Kathy Reiter, certified Enneagram trainer and Spiritual Director &
    Jim Reiter, Professionally Certified in Spiritual Formation
What An adaptation of our 7-hour retreat/workshop offering insight into the background of this ancient personality “inventory,” a narrative orientation to the nine personality types (as well as an engagement of The Wagner Enneagram Personality Style Scales [WEPPS]), and some sense of next steps in the journey to “true self.”
  • The Spiritual Disciplines for Personal and Parish Renewal
    (a 6-week, self-paced online course, launches Monday, January 18, 2021)
    facilitated by Jim Reiter, Professionally Certified in Spiritual Formation
What A six-week, self-paced survey of spiritual formation – with an especial focus on the ways that understandings of temperaments and spiritual types can inform our engagement of the spiritual disciplines for personal and parish enrichment. (For those so choosing, this course can be applied to a fuller “Certification in Spiritual Formation” from The Richard & Julia Wilke Institute of Discipleship.)
  • Exploring Spiritual Formation:
    Mapping Our Journeys Back Home to God

    (a 4-week, self-paced online course, launches Monday, February 22, 2021)
    facilitated by Jim Reiter, Professionally Certified in Spiritual Formation
What In this 4-week, self-paced course, we will take some time to map our spiritual stories—with an eye to the ways that various models of the spiritual growth and development illuminate our stories and ongoing journeys.  Models we’ll consider include the ancient “threefold path,” “stages of faith” conversations (as represented in Janet Hagberg’s Critical Journey and Teresa of Avila’s Interior Castle, and Wesley’s “Order of Salvation.”  A closing week of “next steps” will work to define practical handles and dispositions of the heart that movement in our ongoing “journeys back home to God.”
