Learning as spiritual formation …

My time in bible study this morning – great job Kevin – led me to press the issue of learning or teachable ness as a nuance of the word gentleness used in the Scriptures. The idea of “apprenticeship” to Jesus as an image for spiritual formation first came to me by reading Dallas Willard’s Divine Conspiracy; likely one of the single most challenging reads on life in the Kingdom of God.

I found an article on “Spiritual Formation” on Dallas’ website. This one is worth a read – “Spiritual Formation: What it is, and How it is Done.”

    Recently, I’ve been bogged down ‘gray’ areas. The “black & whiteness” of this article is inspiring & exciting to me. Have sent it on to others to read & hopefully be inspired as well.
