Daniel Aguirre gave the lectures: “Consequences of Reformation II”; second part of the lecture cycle of the previous course. We have seen the transformations in the History of Providence that have prepared the world for the coming of the Messiah, and the specific cultural elements that have originated this transformation.
We analyses in a concrete way the changes made and the sociological and psychological strengths that emerged from the cultural changes previously observed, and their effective impact on society.
We have seen how some human groups and societies have applied all of the above in a substantial way, reviewing concrete examples of countries that have managed to implement positive strategies and the possibilities of effective adaptation to different idiosyncrasies, with special attention to the Latin American.
Luisa Lozano gave the lecture Emotions and typologies, in which we knew the purpose and function of each emotion, we learned that their management is different according to the typology of each one and the importance to have harmony in the relationships with others.
We participated in two conversations; The will of God and my will, Compensation and Restoration vs.
