Unit Description

This unit introduces students to the nature of spiritual formation in the Christian life particularly as it relates to the distinctive period of emerging and young adulthood.

Developmental and life course characteristics of emerging adulthood will be explored, paying attention to the ways in which culture and society shape the journey toward adulthood and the particular social and cultural dynamics which influence young people in their late teens and twenties.

The spirituality and religious engagement of emerging and young adults will be examined in the light of contemporary research, and where relevant, the student’s own experience. Practices, activities, disciplines and experiences that nurture spirituality will be actively explored and experienced with a view to understanding the students own experience and spirituality, and where relevant, companion others in the same.

At the conclusion of this unit, the student will be able to demonstrate a significant understanding of the purpose, value and nature of spiritual formation and be able to facilitate it effectively in their life.
