2019 Passionate Spirituality – The life of faith as a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ
As a result the following areas for Growth have been identified:
This Passionate Spirituality self-assessment is provided so that you can utilise this tool to help you assess your level of Passionate Spirituality and to identify where you specifically need to grow.
We need to remember that we are all on a spiritual journey and so what we need at a particular point in time will differ from person to person.
As a result we have put together a ‘menu’ of options outlining what will be provided by Trinity or what you can do during the year to help you grow in specific areas, leading to more passionate spirituality. This will hopefully enable each person to set their own “Spiritual Goals” for the year.
Step 1: Getting started
To help you identify activities that you could focus on to grow your Passionate Spirituality, there is a Self-Assessment questionnaire for you to complete (ideally online but you can also do this on a hard copy).
- Begin by praying that the Spirit would guide you to see where there is opportunity for spiritual growth.
- Answer the questions as honestly as possible.
- You will receive an email with your scores for each Growth Area. This will serve to help gauge what areas to work on.
By prayerfully assessing your score, choose two (or more if you want) areas to focus on.
Or download and print the same form to fill in manually. Follow the instructions in the booklet.
Step 2: Find out more
Now that you have identified your areas of growth, Trinity’s team will be providing resources / opportunities now and throughout the year for you to be able to develop and grow in your identified growth areas. These are reflected on the Passionate Spirituality Menu.
(Make sure you make use of opportunities for growth and service throughout the year. In other words, don’t leave it for only one part of the year to work on your spirituality.)
For your focus areas, identify which activities or challenges you may take up to enable your growth:
- For more details about these click on the relevant area / action item
- If you want to print the full menu with details here is a PDF version
Your practices, becoming habits, will serve to further ignite your Passionate Spirituality as they move you towards God, God’s people and God’s mission.
Step 3: Complete the Interest Form
Now it’s your chance to plan your Spiritual year!
To help Trinity in its planning for the various activities being offered and to help you formulate your plans for growth during the year, please complete the interest form. This will also enable us to see the level of participation by the congregation in this year’s Passionate Spirituality strategic focus.
Where you indicate an interest in a specific course, retreat or activity we will send you a reminder closer to the event so that you can make a final decision if you want to participate, and then you can sign up when registration formally opens.
Please note that you do not need to limit your participation to activities only in your identified Growth areas. If there is something you want to do to further deepen your spirituality, do reflect your interest for those menu items.
