The aim of this final paper is to give you the opportunity to bring the course readings and discussions into creative conversation with your own religious/spiritual/philosophical stance. This is not simply a journal entry, but an academic exercise in which you intertwine the personal and the intellectual.
The following questions may help get you started:
*What topics stimulated you the most?
*What confirmed and enriched your present thinking, beliefs, experience?
*What challenged you?
*What did you disagree with? What theme clearly conflicted with your own belief or the belief of your religious tradition?
*What topic did you find meaningful and inspiring, and how do you plan on integrating it into your belief system?
This personal-academic engagement with three themes from this course should be approximately 3-4 pages, double-spaced, and 12 point font. Worth 100 points.
