Product Description

Is your church involved in a Spiritual Formation program? If so, you might want to ask the question, what exactly is Spiritual Formation? It’s a fair question, and one that, if not asked, could end up surprising you when your church changes in ways you never imagined.

A Christianity Today article states: “Spiritual Formation is in.” The article defines Spiritual Formation in this way:

Formation, like the forming of a pot from clay, brings to mind shaping and molding, helping something potential become something actual. Spiritual formation speaks of a shaping process with reference to the spiritual dimension of a person’s life. Christian spiritual formation thus refers to the process by which believers become more fully conformed and united to Christ.1

Such a definition would hardly send up red flags. But what this definition excludes is how this “process” of conforming and uniting to Christ takes place and who is eligible to participate in such a process.

The “how” is done through spiritual disciplines, primarily through the discipline of the silence. The silence is an altered state that is reached through a mantra-like meditation, breath prayers, or some other meditative practice. The idea behind it is that if you go into this silent state, you will eliminate distractions (thoughts) and be able to hear God’s voice. He in turn will transform you to be like Christ. The “who” (who can practice these disciplines and become like Christ) is anyone (according to Spiritual Formation pioneer Richard Foster and other proponents of Spiritual Formation). A Christian, a Buddhist, a Muslim, even an atheist—anyone at all can benefit from the spiritual disciplines and become like Christ (the question is which Christ?).

Our church is practicing Spiritual Formation

Our church is practicing Spiritual Formation to a degree. At some point I will have to bring up this topic with our church leadership, so I needed to be better equipped. This booklet was beneficial in helping me to better understand the main ingredients of Spiritual Formation .

Is Your Church Doing Spiritual Formation?

I only recently heard people in church talking about a book. When I checked it out online I noticed it was about Spiritual Formation, which I knew nothing about, but remembered hearing someplace it wasn’t a good thing.
I read this informative booklet in one evening and learned a lot. I am sad to know some well respected pastors have introduced this practice to their parishioners.

I am very concerned about the attempted infiltration of post-modern, emergent thinking into our churches. This is a great booklet book in helping to discern whether our churches are getting involved wIh spiritual formation
