This Week’s Prompt: Spiritual Formation

Spiritual formation – the forming of your spirit or your connection with the Holy Spirit.

What does this look like for you?  What practices, disciplines, and experiences are your spiritual formation?  Are you hungry to connect with the Holy Spirit more intimately, more regularly yet unsure of how that actually happens?

That’s what we’re talking about this week at Velvet Ashes.  Because if anything matters, this does.  From your Holy Spirit connection flows everything else.

Here’s what we have for you:

Today Kimberly Todd starts us off this week with a stunning example from the sea.  Struggling with trust, faithfulness or patience when it comes to spiritual formation?  Kimberly’s words will be a Holy Spirit message for you.  “Growing into the Adjoining Chamber.”

Tuesday – Join us for what is sure to be a great Book Club discussion.  What do you do when life makes it hard (or impossible) to do your life-giving practices?

Wednesday – We’re thrilled to welcome Danielle Hance and her first post for Velvet Ashes.  You’ll be so inspired by her words and the practice she used to connect with God when she’s in the midst of deep pain.

Thursday – We have the honor of having Adele Ahlberg Calhoun author of Invitations from God joining us for an interview.  Her book just might forever change the way you look at life and spiritual formation.

Friday – Join Patty Stallings at The Grove.  Anyone else excited to sit and drink Patty’s wisdom on this topic?  Bring your thoughts, your words, your art on the prompt “Spiritual Formation.”  Link up your blog posts and join us in the comments.

Looking forward to being formed with you all this week, Ladies.  So very grateful for you, for a community of like-hearted sisters to journey with.

    Spiritual Formation makes me think a bit of the way it is with trees…especially big ones like are shown in this photo I took in Australia (near Melbourne). Roots, leaves, branches, bark and blooms all have a way of speaking of formation. So right now I am contemplating my roots and their connection to the nourishment of the Father, Son and Spirit. I’d like to soar like these trees do spiritually – so much involved.

What do you think?
