The minor sequence in Christian practice explores the nature and meaning of prayer, liturgy, spirituality and community engagement in the Christian tradition. Studies in Christian practice serve to complement your broader studies in biblical studies and Christian thought by the development of a critical appreciation of how Christians live out their faith lives as an expression of their understanding of the Christian scriptures and Christian doctrine.
