As we continue to going through the basics, our next class will be on the Holy Spirit, one of the central characters in the Course, yet also a nexus of endless confusion, even among experienced students and teachers. We will look at what the Holy Spirit is and is not. And we will look at His role and how we should (and should not) relate to Him.
“Atonement” is one of the most significant terms in the Course, but what does it actually mean and how can it become personally meaningful to us?
In our continuing emphasis on covering the basics, our next class will be on Jesus. While we have had classes before that dealt with various subjects relating to Jesus, this one will focus on more of the big picture: his place in the Course, how the Course frames its relationship with the Jesus of history, and how we as Course students should see Jesus’ place in our own lives.
The Course frequently talks about the goal of saving the world and says that miracles are the means by which this will happen. But what does that mean? And is it realistic to think that miracles could actually accomplish such a colossal feat?
We have been attempting to cover some of the basics recently, and one of the most basic topics when it comes to the Course is the question of how it relates to Christianity. Is the Course the same as Christianity, totally different than Christianity, or somewhere in between?
In this class, we will finish out the theory and then get more practical, addressing our own issues in regard to equality.
In this class we will continue with the remaining theological concepts, which include the Holy Spirit and the nature of the world.
Concepts like God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, Heaven, and the world are absolutely foundational to the Course, yet most of us are somewhat muddled about some or all of these concepts. This class will attempt to clear that up.
When the Course speaks of our equality, what does that mean? In what ways are we equal? And how does this fact of equality contrast with our usual perceptions?
This class will conclude our series on guidance. Once you receive the guidance, you have to follow it, but that raises issues of willingness and timing, among other things.
