Congregations seeking to transform are proactive in encouraging spiritual formation. In dialogue within congregations we often engage one another in dialogue about family, work, sports, health, and various life experiences. Not often do we engage one another in conversations about spiritual formation.
The most important relationships are spiritual. Appropriate questions can revolve around how each other encountered God in worship today, the spiritual formation of children and grandchildren, what new spiritual insights people are having at their current stage of life, how they see certain Bible passages differently than they did during another stage of life, and many other questions.
