Indigenous Spirituality and Christian Discipleship (NAIITS)

Semester 2
Available Online

Students will be introduced to a ‘spirituality’ or way of life that grows from the roots of both Indigenous and Christian traditions, noting that there are many ways of mingling the two into one set of practices and rituals. Along the way, students will be invited to consider the value and meaning of practices such as communality, kinship, guidance, initiation, worship, prayer, hospitality, prophecy, evangelisation, sacrifice and solidarity, especially as these are performed by Indigenous peoples. They will also engage with resources that will help them articulate a Christian and Indigenous critique of the dominant forms of spirituality in Modernity.
