SEMINARS/WORKSHOPS WITH DR. RAND MICHAEL

 

Spirituality 360: Why Spiritual Work by Nature is Slow Work

Understanding how God has created us as whole beings and that our spirituality is not separate from our bodies can provide a more liberating approach to ministry. Spiritual development and examples from the life of Jesus Himself are examined in light of interpersonal neuroscience. Application to various aspects of ministry is considered.

 

Jesus, Ministry, and E-Motion(s)

Emotion and cognition are integral to one another. Whether clergy or laity, all who minister—including Jesus Himself—experience a variety of thoughts and feelings. Consideration of the nature of emotions—including those of Jesus—can help us embrace our full affective range as we live and serve in His Name.

 

Science-and-Faithing: A Wholistic Approach to All of Creation

Rightly understood, science and faith are complements and partners, not antithetical competitors. When we “read deeply” the universe, life, and the Bible, we discover these sing together a harmonious anthem of praise.
