There are many who regard spiritual formation as the latest fad in the church especially in North American evangelical faith communities. Others including some scholars have suggested that the modern spiritual formation movement has stalled. It is therefore heartening to me to know of a group of people who have come together under Renovare and Spiritual Formation Alliance and has formulated a document named "A Call to Spiritual Formation".
They defines Christian spiritual formation as the process of being shaped by the Spirit into the likeness of Christ, filled with the love for God and the world.
Read the document here.
I hope that the formulating of this document is the beginning of a renewal with the spiritual formation movement.
