Introduction to Spiritual Formation
Introduction to Spiritual Formation
This short introduction outlines this series on spiritual formation.

Listen to the editor of Form, Elizabeth Neep, as she outlines this series.

The four values we will be looking at over this series are:

  1. Formed by real life – spiritual formation is not something we opt in or out of but we are being formed everyday by what and who is in our world.
  2. Formed by relationship – the way Jesus lived his life was with the people, his disciples and his followers; not insular but in community.
  3. Formed by scripture – in a world of conflicting opinions we have a solid foundation to live our lives by.
  4. Formed by history – what we do now is shaped by those who went before us. Spiritual disciplines are centuries old and are as important now as they have ever been.
