Another definition for spiritual formation


My dear wife sent me the following definition of spiritual formation from Ashland Seminary as part of their core values statement

Ashland Theological Seminary believes that Spiritual Formation is at the heart of all we do.  Spiritual Formation is the process of nurturing an intimate relationship with God, encompassing heart, soul, and mind.

Spiritual Formation is obedience to the Word of Christ and an intentional commitment to grow, study, pray, and be held accountable for our life and witness, both before God and one another.

    Thanks for this.

    Another helpful statement on what spiritual formation is came out of June’s Renovare conference in San Antonio. You can read it at http://acalltospiritualformation.info/default.aspx.
