Title: Beguiled by Beauty: a Spirituality of Compassion and Justice
Description: This class will explore some ancient Christian wisdom linking beauty with care for humanity and for creation. Instead of thinking of justice primarily as a moral obligation, we will consider compassion and justice as flowing out of a spirituality of beauty. Beguiled by the beauty of others, we naturally are provoked to desire their well-being.
Facilitator: Dr. Wendy Farley joined the SFTS faculty in 2016, where she is serving as the Rice Family Chair of Spirituality and Director of the Diploma in the Art of Spiritual Direction. Before that she was a professor at Emory University where she was chair of Theological Studies for over twenty years. She is the author of several books but for the moment she is delighting in the many natural beauties of her new home.
Other offerings are being finalized and will be posted shortly
