Spiritual Formation Immersion Weekend Held in January
Pittsburgh Theological Seminary will host the Immersion Weekend, the foundational course in the Spiritual Formation Certificate program, Jan. 28-31.
Throughout the weekend, time will be spent on the program’s four components: academic, communal, personal, and practical. Participants will consider Hebrew Spirituality, New Testament Spirituality, Monastic Spirituality, and Reformed Spirituality. An important facet of the event is the opportunity to reflect on one’s spiritual pilgrimage. Participants are led through guided meditations and spend time in prayer, reflection, and journaling. The Immersion Weekend provides a safe place on a risky journey to be with God; encouraging laughter, fellowship, recreation and rest with other Christians through Scripture, prayer, singing and worship; offering academic and practical learning through lectures, reading, and discussion. The group will also answer questions about program requirements and future courses. Presbyterian minister Betty Voigt will direct the weekend’s activities.
