Our Spiritual Formation (SF) programs are designed to help individuals know themselves and God more, find and follow their calling, and live their lives to the fullest.
The SF has two levels. SF Level One focuses on greater self-awareness and God-awareness. SF Level Two highlights a deeper and more grounded spirituality crucial to living out one’s calling. Each level includes monthly preached retreats, monthly spiritual direction, spiritual readings, and continuous contemplative practices at work and at home.
The Four Elements of Spiritual Formation
Jesus, the Rabboni, encourages us to choose the more important thing—to sit at the foot of the Lord and listen to his words. The spiritual formation involves a series of spiritual teachings prayerfully crafted to inspire renewal of the heart and the mind. The teachings are designed to offer golden nuggets on which the formands can ponder.
The teachings are given at the start of every gathering. Each teaching explores a particular topic building on the previous one.
A prayerful silence allows the Spirit to work in us. Jesus showed us the importance of solitude and going to a quiet place to pray. Whether it is in a physical space like a prayer room or a quiet corner in our hearts, we are invited to take time praying and reflecting on God’s messages for us.
Reflection questions are posed after every teaching to guide the formands during their quiet time. This practice is also encouraged as they read the required books and other articles.
