What Is Spiritual Formation?

Air Date December 22, 2014


Spiritual formation is the process by which Christ is formed in us. This takes place for the glory of God, for the abundance of our own lives, and for the sake of others. On this Midday Connection Richard Foster, founder of Renovaré and expert in the field of spiritual transformation, joins us to talk about what it looks like for the Christ follower to be spiritually formed.
