Conversations 8.1: How We Change

Vol 8.1 Spring 2010

A few months ago, Conversatio Divina began a project to revive some helpful spiritual formation content you might remember. But if you’re new to us, we’d like to introduce you to The Conversations Journal. Originally published by Richmont Graduate University and founded by editors Gary W. Moon, David G. Benner and Larry Crabb in 2003, Conversations was published semi-annually covering themes of spiritual formation.

We are going to reach into the archives and bring an old issue of Conversations back to life. We’ll attempt to do so every couple of months until all 28 issues live on I’ll highlight a few of the articles that appear in a particular issue, and zero in on one featured article and provide questions and suggest practices for individuals or groups who want to experience a class with the words of the writer.

This current course is built around issue 8.1: How We Change. In a year when the pace of change is impossible to keep up with, I still have weeks that could be straight out of the movie Groundhog Day. It got me wondering how change really does happen, and why spiritual growth—becoming more like Jesus—often feels like an elusive and futile process. Join me as we revisit this issue on transformation.

See class here.
