SPR 532 - Natural Spirituality

19th century poet, Gerard Manley Hopkins declared, “the world is charged with the grandeur of God.” Many people in the 21st century have turned away from organized religious practice and towards an understanding of spirituality that is focused on nature itself. This is not a new, or unique phenomenon. SPR 532 discusses the inherent nature of the human person; the nature of the relationship between person and the natural environment; the historic movements of natural spirituality; the 19th century Transcendentalists, and, details a legitimate Christian approach to natural spirituality.
