In January, Baptist Seminary of Kentucky will offer an intensive J-Term class entitled, Monasticism Old and New. Taught by Drs. Medley and and Inscore Essick, this course will have an accompanying two-night retreat at St. Meinrad Archabbey in Spencer County, Indiana. This course is open to the BSK community for those who may want to audit. Offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, the course will run from January 2 – January 24. Along with the retreat, this class will explore a variety of Christian monastic movements. Special attention will be given to the biblical, historical, and theological foundations for Christian monasticism. Students will reflect on the ways congregations and ministers can learn from the breadth and depth of the Christian monastic tradition.
If you are interested in taking this course for credit or auditing it, contact Abby Sizemore, BSK’s Director of Admissions, at firstname.lastname@example.org or apply online at bsk.edu/apply.
