A Life Worth Living
An article in the most recent Christian Century is about a class offered at Yale called “Life Worth Living”. It was conceived by a theologian at Yale Divinity, Miroslav Volf, to address something that he and others felt was missing: a class that asks about ultimate purposes and what constitutes a good life. It's to be something that gets students thinking beyond what will get them a good job. Students comment that it is different to read great texts looking to address the great questions of life, to ask what one wants in life, and whether that is worth wanting, rather than intellectual analysis.
I'm feeling that that may be my area of November gratitude – finding something each day that brings up the question of contributing to a life worth living. How does an article, a comment, a walk in nature add to my thinking about what is most important, what contributes to or enhances a “good life”, for me or others? It feels like a good exercise of the heart, and of the soul.
Grateful for you..............Jeannie
