Implicit in spiritual maturity is emotional maturity—the ability to handle situations without unnecessarily escalating them, to correct our problems and behavior rather than blame someone else for them, to accept accountability for our actions. A spiritual awakening sounds a lot more exciting, honestly, yet it is spiritual maturity that leads to the fruits and fullness of what Richard Rohr calls the second half of life. Join us this Sunday as we explore how spiritual awakening and spiritual/emotional maturity relate to one another. To prepare for this Sunday, please ponder the reflection questions below. Your insights will deepen our experience of becoming spiritual companions with one another. I can't wait to see you!
With love and wishes for peace, Linda
As we wrap up our series on Finding Yourself in Transition, reflect on the following:
Is "awakening" a one-time experience, a "burning bush"/ah-ha experience?
Is it a process or "retraining"?
Is "awakening" simply part of the spiritual maturation process?
What role does the emotional maturation process play in either an "awakening" or growing in spiritual maturity?
