LDS 504 How Can We Help? The Nature of Conscience Service
Faculty: Janice L. Lundy, D.Min. (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
Are you someone who intends or already ministers to at risk or suffering populations? Often when we set out to do this type of ministry, we go with the best of intentions, hoping to help or save someone from their despair. But, more often than we realize, these people (the homeless, the dying, the poor, people with disabilities, et. al) who live with extreme challenges, end up being our teachers. They invite us to deep inner work including transparently assessing our perceptions, how we relate to suffering, and noticing how our egos may become ensnared in the role of “helper.” This tutorial explores the nature of conscious service by looking more deeply into how we can really help.
