Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

Series Explores the Idea of Spiritual But Not Religious

Pittsburgh Theological Seminary will present “Where to Belong, If Anywhere?” Monday evenings, May 6, 13, and 20, 2013 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. Susan Kendall, director of the Seminary’s Doctor of Ministry Program, will lead the course.

The desire to belong and to live life with compassion and dignity remains steady despite the seeming collapse of institutions, authority, and meaning brought about by technology, economics, religious tensions, and more predictions of change. During this course, attendees will focus on the terms “spiritual but not religious” and “spirituality,” the category of post-denominational affiliation, and identifying as a “none of the above.” Together participants will explore what remains, what always has been, and what always will be using that center to reflect on what all of this might mean for each of us. The instructor will provide a selection of readings, mostly short essays, both ancient and new, to serve as the common conversational point.

Registration fee is $50. Contact the Office of Continuing Education at 412-924-1345 or ConEd@testsite.pts.edu with questions. Register online.
