Feeding On The Depths: Nourishing Your Congregation On Fillet of Soul
Led by: The Rev. Don M. Wardlaw, PhD

We struggle in church not so much to feel our spiritual hunger as to feed it. Traditional metaphors, still the regular diet of most gathered believers, have in the past generation lost much nourishing power. Images of kingdom, crown, and throne, while tasting great for some, are less filling for many. Give us, instead, more language with fiber and nutrients for the inner journey. Enter Carl Jung with a thought-frame and imagery that could be called the bread and wine of inwardness. Workshop participants will explore options for vital language in worship, preaching, and teaching that not only resonate with Jung, but more importantly, reframe the Gospel as food for the soul.

The Rev. Don M. Wardlaw, PhD.The Rev. Don M. Wardlaw, PhD. is J.G.K. McClure Professor Emeritus of Preaching and Worship, McCormick Theological Seminary, Chicago. A native of Little Rock, with bachelor's degree from Columbia University, M.Div. from Union Theological Seminary in Virginia, and Ph.D. in New Testament from The University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, Scotland, Dr. Wardlaw, served two pastorates in Presbyterian churches in the Memphis area, then taught preaching and worship at Columbia Seminary for 10 years, rounding out his formal career with teaching preaching and worship for 21 years at McCormick Theological Seminary, Chicago. During his last ten years in Chicago, he founded and directed the Association of Chicago Theological Schools' D. Min. in Preaching Program jointly sponsored by six Chicago seminaries. He has taught as guest professor at Princeton Seminary, Union Theological Seminary in Virginia, and Yale Divinity School. Don has led preaching seminars throughout the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, and Sweden.


In the early 1990's, Don became deeply interested in the work of C. G.Jung and began to formulate a Jungian oriented homiletic. He is presently working on a book, "Preaching From Within."

The Language of the Soul
Led by The Rev. John L. Martin, D.Min. and Carolyn Martin, M.R.E.

The purpose of this seminar is to familiarize the participants with the basic concepts of Jungian Psychology. We have discovered that the best way to do this is in terms of a living model of the psyche as it was understood by Jung. The seminar is structured to allow us to do just this. In order to communicate his understanding of the human psyche Jung developed his own vocabulary and an understanding of this vocabulary is important is appropriating Jung’s psychology for our personal lives.

Session I - Jung’s Model of the Psyche

We will consider how symbols work in terms of Jung’s approach. We then turn to Jung’s model of the psyche and locate its various aspects: the personal unconscious, the collective unconscious, ego, persona, shadow, anima and animus, complexes and the Self. This material is presented, not as a set of philosophical concepts, but as living realities with which we have to deal each day of our life; the things that make us feel the way we feel and act the way we act.

Session II

Projection - Our experience of the realities of the personal unconscious, the collective unconscious, ego, persona, shadow, anima and animus, complexes and the Self involves an elementary psychological reality that is important for us to understand. We will spend a certain amount of time defining and illustrating the basic psychological experience of projection.

Concepts of Anima/Animus - Would it be safe to say that our relationships with the opposite sex can be a little problematic? We think so. In this session we carefully consider Jung’s contribution to this area of personal relationships. Using his notions of anima (the woman within the man) and animus (the man within the woman), we attempt to clarify the dynamics of these "invisible partners." Film clips are wonderful tools in this part of our study.

Session III - Jung’s Theory of the Complex

Perhaps the most important practical contribution of Jung to modern life is his theory of the complex. To grasp his understanding of complexes can change the way we think about ourselves and can open exciting doors of personal transformation. With this part of our study all that has gone before will come together in a way that we trust will be of genuine benefit to everyone participating.

"I cannot define for you what God is, I can only say that my work has proved empirically that the pattern of God exists in every [hu]man, and that this pattern has at its disposal the greatest of all his energies for transformation and transfiguration of his natural being. Not only the meaning of his life but his renewal and his institutions depend on his conscious relationship with this pattern in his collective unconscious."  - C. G. Jung
