LF547 Vocational Holiness and Marketplace Spiritual Formation (3 Credits)
23 November–2 December 2016, Wednesday to Friday, 9.00 am-5.00 pm
Committed Christians are often concerned about discovering God’s will for their lives in terms of what occupation to take up or who to marry. The deeper question will be to discern what is God’s calling – to be and become. Another concern is how they are to live and have their being in their workplace and marketplace. Central to this is how to maintain the vitality of their spiritual life and growth in the modern lifestyle that is extremely hectic and exhausting. This course will deal with Christian discernment or decision-making and the theology of God’s calling and vocation. It will examine Ignatian, Quaker, Puritan and Wesleyan approaches to discernment. The issue of hectic and busy lifestyles will be examined and approaches developed to nurture the spiritual life. The concepts of Missio Dei and Sabbath in their vocations will be developed.
Suitable for people who wants to know more about making important life choices, about Godly decision-making and God’s calling; about Christian discernment; about spiritual maintenance and growth in busy and stressful lifestyles.

Christians, are you tired of living a defeated Christian life?
The Bible reveals the secret to a victorious Christian living is simply to be Spirit-filled and to walk in Him on a continuing basis (Galatians 5:16-25).
While we are indwelt with the Holy Spirit the moment we trust Christ, learning to walk in the Spirit (fully empowered, reliant, yielded to God’s will) is a lifestyle requiring our active participation.
“The Christian life is so simple that we stumble over the very simplicity of it, and yet it is so difficult that no one can live it.” ~ by Bill Bright
