Description

This course explores contemporary Christian spirituality in relation to the phenomena of sports. Students will study how human beings encounter "the Holy" in the midst of everyday life with significant emphasis placed on how experiences associated with sports, either as an athlete-participant, spectator, or as identifying with athletes and teams, have an impact in developing a critical assessment of one's personal systems of morality, ethics, and human values. This assessment, in turn, becomes a focus on the ways in which one relates to the Holy Presence of God and/or His transcendent Presence in the course of one's life.
