Spiritual Formation ...
... is the activity of the Holy Spirit which molds our lives into the likeness of Jesus Christ.
This Likeness is one of deep intimacy with God and genuine compassion for all creation.
The Spirit works not only in the lives of individuals but also in the church, shaping it into the Body of Christ.
We cooperate with this work of the Spirit through practices that make us more open and responsive to the Spirit's touch, disciplines such as Sabbath keeping, Works of compassion and justice, discernment, workship, hospitality, spiritual friendships, and contemplative silence.
