About this Course
Emotionally Healthy Spirituality is based on the premise that emotional health and spiritual health are inseparable and that many of us get stuck spiritually because we haven't done the hard work of becoming emotionally healthy.
This course is included in the lay education certification pathway
. This class is also a prerequisite for becoming Certified Pulpit Supply. To receive credit, participants will need to attend seven out of the eight sessions.
ANYONE can take the course; you do not have to be in the lay ministry certification process.
This is a great course to take to support the laity in forming a foundation for emotional health and spiritual health as you grow in your own discipleship and choose to lead others.
This eight-week ONLINE course, based on Peter Scazzero's book Emotionally Healthy Spirituality
, will be taught by Conference Lay Leader Amy Thompson. The course will be offered via Zoom weekly from 7-8:30 p.m. beginning Wednesday, October 18, and the last class will be held Wednesday, December 13 (Thanksgiving week this class will not meet). There is no charge for the course.
