Write a post in response to The Shack in which you discuss 3-5 ideas WM Paul Young suggests to you about The Human Condition-In Search of Self.
Consider your discussions of key questions in the STJ forums on The Shack (login required).
Consider your many class discussions on the four postulates:
- Can something come from nothing?
- Does God exist?
- Do humans have immortal soul?
- Do humans have free will?
Consider the course focus:
The most profound discovery that we can make is our discovery of self. Our identity rests in the kind of people we are. To understand who we are and to develop fully as human beings, we must explore the nature of our humanness and the purpose of our lives. Who and what are we? What are the common human qualities and ideals we hold? What roles do other people (e.g., friends, family) play in our lives? What brings us joy, inspiration, and fulfillment? What doubts and fears do we have? By examining our lives and searching for answers to these and other questions, we can find meaning and fulfillment as human beings.
