Course Description

When you think of the heart, do you think of emotions only, your physical heart, or maybe simply love and romance? Modern language limits what we know as “heart,” but the Hebrew people understood “heart” as far more encompassing. This wholeheartedness brings healing to our entire selves and allows us to live in a way that also brings healing and life to the world. It leads us to ask, “What does it mean to live wholeheartedly?” In A Wholehearted and Formed Life, explore what it is to live wholeheartedly. Led by Rev. Dr. Laura Murray, ordained pastor, author, and certified spiritual director, this course guides you through the complexities of restoration, the resistance you face to being made whole, walking with loss, and waiting for complete healing. Learn to continue to walk as light in the world, with good character and faithfulness.

Please note: This course is the recommended sixth course in the Spiritual Formation Certificate Program.
