Article

The article pays attention to spiritual formation as a vital focus in youth ministry. Spiritual formation will be described as a contextual process of meaning making and integration of what we believe into how we live our lives. The individualistic nature of especially postmodern spirituality gets attention. Lastly the article will focus on the connection between identity formation and spiritual formation, as well as the community orientated focus of Christian spirituality, which makes it so valuable for youth ministry today.

Die artikel skenk aandag aan geestelike vorming as ‘n noodsaaklike fokus in jeugbediening. Geestelike vorming sal beskryf word as ‘n kontekstuele proses van sinmaking en integrasie van wat ons glo in hoe ons leef. Die individualistiese aard van veral postmoderne spiritualiteit geniet aandag. Laastens fokus die artikel op die verbintenis tussen identiteitsvorming en geestelike vorming asook die gemeenskap georienteerde fokus van Christelike spiritualiteit wat dit so waardevol maak vir jeugbediening vandag.
