Footnotes: Residential Institute on Competing Pastoral Options

Residential Institute in Competing Pastoral OptionsStudents interested in earning credits toward their degree by studying on site at the Graduate Theological Foundation should consider our Residential Institutes, an increasingly popular study option for GTF students. Our upcoming December 7-11 Institute will focus on “Competing Pastoral Options in a Fractured World.” In this Institute, students will explore personal wholeness in the modern world, the fractured nature of human experience and our personal quest for spiritual nurture. In addition, students will examine the classical schools of psychotherapy in relation to the Institute focus. The registration deadline is November 23. Register early as space is limited!

Moderated by Dr. John H. Morgan, Karl Mannheim Professor of the History and Philosophy of the Social Sciences, this Institute consists of a morning seminar (“Defining Wholeness in a Troubled World”) and an afternoon seminar (“Pastoral Nurture in a Matrix of Competing Worldviews”) over the course of five days. Students will be immersed in a nurturing yet academically rigorous setting among a group of their peers.
