RS-366: Sickness, Suffering, and Death

This course examines suffering and death from a biblical perspective, from current theological perspectives, and from the perspective of human experience. It encourages the development of a holistic outlook on life and the acceptance of dying and rising as a recurring event that can prepare us for death. It fosters within the student the skills needed to deal with one's own mortality and suffering in this life, as well as skills needed in being present to another person who is suffering or facing death. This course can be used to satisfy University Studies requirements.
