Partnering with the Spirit in Formation


Category: Tag:


Christian spiritual formation is the work of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit works through three main aspects of our lives: narrative (the stories we live by, and are living us), practices (spiritual disciplines) and community. When done rightly, we become Christ-like in character (love,kindness, compassion, power). But the formation of the individual is not the telos of spiritual formation. Ultimately, our formation is for mission. As Dallas Willard said, “God’s purpose in history is the creation of an all-inclusive community of loving persons.” This workshop will explore how the Spirit forms us and how the Spirit sends us.
