Spirituality I define as becoming conscious of and intentional about
our relationship to God. I say conscious of because I firmly maintain
that we are all already in a relationship with God and
we have been so since our very beginning, whether we know that or
not, believe that or not. Spirituality is about becoming conscious
of that relationship. I say intentional because I see spirituality
as being about paying attention to that relationship, being intentional
about deepening that relationship and letting that relationship
grow. Just as human relationships grow and deepen through spending
time in them and paying attention to them, so also our relationship
with God grows in this same way.
