The Importance of Your Divinity Statement of Purpose
Your divinity statement of purpose needs to reflect why you believe you are called to this career. People become spiritual leaders and teachers for a number of reasons—a deep sense of personal conviction, a life changing experience, or a rich heritage of spiritual influence. Spirituality is deeply personal and requires that you have an ability to connect and communicate well with people. Often you may find yourself in challenging circumstances where you have to support people experiencing difficult times. It requires true strength of character and compassion to be able to handle such circumstances effectively.
Your divinity personal statement or statement of purpose is key in showing admissions officers why you feel this is your path in life. It brings your personality, motivation, and strength of character to the forefront, and is your first step in getting accepted to the divinity school of your choice.
