About the Edition

"This book is predicated on the belief that the spiritual development of college students has been largely ignored in our colleges and universities, despite the importance of spiritual matters to young people in their quest to lead integrated lives. Thus, while academics are understandably proud of their "outer" accomplishments in the fields of science, medicine, technology, and commerce, colleges and universities have increasingly come to neglect the student"s "inner" development--the sphere of values and beliefs, emotional maturity, spirituality, and self-understanding. The book defines "spiritual development" very broadly: how students make meaning of their education and their lives, how they develop a sense of purpose, the value and belief dilemmas that they experience, as well as the role of religion, the sacred, and the mystical in their lives. Each student, of course, will view his or her spirituality in a unique way. For many, traditional religious beliefs and practices may form the core of their spirituality; for others such beliefs and practices may play little or no part. While two-thirds of the students in the study express a strong interest in spiritual matters, well over half report that their professors never encourage discussions of religious/spiritual matters, and about the same proportion report that professors never provide opportunities to discuss the purpose and meaning of life. By raising public awareness of the important role that spirituality plays in student learning and development, by alerting academic administrators, faculty, and curriculum committees to the importance of spiritual development, and by identifying possible strategies for enhancing that development, the book will encourage institutions to give greater priority to these spiritual aspects of students" educational and personal development"--

part IVCultivating Spirit The Care and Feeding of the InterActive Organization CULTIVATING SPIRIT may seem a rather odd phrase, but it is in keeping with the analogy to gardening - Selection from The Power of Spirit [Book].   "Cultivating the Spirit makes a unique and important contribution to one of the least examined yet most fundamental questions about undergraduate education: how students acquire the values and convictions that help to give meaning and purpose to their lives. The authors provide a wealth of valuable findings about this vital process and its Brand: Wiley.

  Tomorrow’s gospel passage from John’s 14th chapter (for Monday, May 15) brings back a memory from years ago when my turn as “helper” with our RCIA group necessitated explaining the role of the Holy Spirit in our prayers lives to our candidates and catechumen. In John’s gospel, Jesus shares with his disciples: “I have told you this while I am with you. Meekness is defined as power under control, and in the life of a believer, it is being under the control of God's Spirit. We're free from any revenge or bitterness in our relationships. A gentle or meek spirit should be how we relate to God and our relationships with others. Cultivating Gentleness: We cannot develop this character trait on our own.

As parents, we want to raise children who know God, love Him, and share His love with the world. But raising kids who live out such faith is less about our own parenting skills and more about God’s power. When the Holy Spirit lives through us, we model the fruit of the Spirit—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control—for our children. In.
