Be Wise: Theology for Everyday Life

Dates1

Thursday 15 September

Online Event

Deeper study for whole-life impact

Ever wonder why much of Sunday’s exhortation to ‘follow Jesus’ seems strangely disconnected from the stuff of your everyday life?

Then this course is for you!

This twelve-session course designed to help you grow in wisdom – helping you live in a way that’s distinctly, recognisably, and intentionally Christian on a 24/7 basis, becoming a ‘peacemaker’ in your daily context.

Guided by LICC’s resident practical theologian, Dr Dave Benson, and in conversation with others on the course, you’ll be equipped to live faithfully and fruitfully in these complex times.

Growing together as a community of practice, you’ll learn to reflect theologically on the world around you, making connections between what you believe and the way you live your life. And you’ll discover how to integrate the best of biblical and secular insights to help you live more faithfully where you are.

Each session requires an hour of pre-reading and features interactive, online group learning followed by journal reflections. At the end of the course, you’ll undertake a practical final project to enact what you’ve learnt during the sessions. You’ll also be supported by personal tuition beyond the class, offering feedback as you put the material into practice.

What?
Twelve-week course. Two hours per week with some preparation outside sessions. Course content is equivalent to a first-year degree subject.
