Globalised systems often reflect an array of ambivalent values. Persons participating in such systems need a strong sense of personal identity and the ability to have a deeper sense of meaning in their lives. Higher theological education that has a strong emphasis on reflexive competence can help learners to constructing meaning and hence enable them to participate in a globalised milieu with confidence. In this article we examine the value of using a reflective journal to enable learners to grow in their ability to integrate what they learn into their lives so that they can grow not only in knowledge, but in wisdom.
