This unit of inquiry demonstrates one way that two key ideas: CW 4.2 People express their spirituality in various contexts within and beyond Christianity and CC 4.3 Christians pray, worship and celebrate the sacraments can be drawn together to provide the framework for a rich learning experience
In this unit, students explore connectedness and belonging as key concepts of spirituality. They investigate personal and community connections and identify ways in which these provide (or do not provide) contexts for and expressions of spirituality. They also consider themes of belonging and connection central to traditional Aboriginal spiritual beliefs. Students also examine some Christian expressions of spiritual connection (eg. prayer, worship, fellowship, devotional practices) and consider their value in deepening a Christian’s spirituality.
