We, at WAC, had to take a Summer Hiatus due to a series of events that required closing down for the summer but we're BACK!
Our October course will be RS240: Worship, Prayer & Meditation with Rev. Rebecca Walden. This is a great transitional course after the busyness of the summer break and will draw our focus back to the Presence of God, which all things should flow from. It will be a lovely SELAH from which to begin our Fall Quarter.
Course Statement: This course focuses on the challenge of spiritual growth as it relates to the devotional practices of worship, prayer and meditation. It offers grounding in the principles and practices of building an inner devotional life based on the writings of three devotional masters who have gone before us—Jonathan Edwards, Jeanne Guyon, and Brother Lawrence. The goal of this course is to equip the worshiper with the tools required to activate passionate devotion, one of the keys to releasing the nature, character and glory of God both personally and corporately.
Relationship to the Worship Arts Degree Program:
Course Number RS 240, “Worship, Prayer and Meditation”, is a second level course in Religious Studies in the Associate of Worship Arts Degree Program. This curriculum is designed to aid the believer in the pursuit of a deeper relationship with the Lord through an informed understanding of scriptural patterns and principles of whole-hearted devotion to and communion with God. Through the thoughtful study of the lives of biblical and historical “God-chasers” the student will add the skills necessary to maintain a life of worship, prayer and meditation and gain relevant insight into the plan of God for worshipers today.
