Stages of Spiritual Formation – Jeff Blake

February 6, 2018

“I have built my journey around Henri Nouwen’s stages of spiritual formation from his book Reaching Out — (1) loneliness to solitude, (2) hostility to hospitality, and (3) illusion to prayer. For a long time, I thought the big issue for me was loneliness to solitude, but I have discovered my place to dig deeper, and change is from hostility to hospitality. I’m known for my hospitality, but sometimes, it is less than I would like it to be.” — Jeff Blake in A Year on Grace Street: Daily Signposts

    I like how you spoke about your personal struggles. Most believers have felt this way. I write about spiritual formation too. I would love to hear your opinion.
