BEING CHRISTIAN is not about us; it’s about Jesus. Spiritual formation is about the life of Jesus being made visible in our bodies; it’s about engaging the Spirit because we are hungry for God; it’s about becoming disciples so that Jesus can pour his life into us. It’s about learning to love God with our heart, mind, body, and soul. It’s about having the courage to actually follow Christ—to place one foot in front of the other, to dare to live a life of grace.
