Naming Your Stage of Apprenticeship: Active & Passive Spirituality
Part 6 from the series, “Naming Your Stage of Apprenticeship”, as part of Practicing the Way. In this teaching we introduce an ancient paradigm called “active and passive spirituality,” a key idea in spiritual formation that we’ve lost in the modern, Western church. We mature by a combination of practicing the way of Jesus (active spirituality) and accepting the invitations of Jesus in our pain. A key question we must ask daily is: What is Jesus trying to do in my life and how do I cooperate?
