Research Projects

Faculty in the News

We try to teach academic courses in ways that are eminently pastoral and applicable. Our practical courses are very academic. We try to teach them both in ways that nurture people's own spiritual growth. The academic, the pastoral, and the spiritual – letting all three suffuse each other and inform and color each other. We don't see these as a triangle. We see them as integrated.
