On Spiritual Formation
by Margot Patterson
“How do you make faith meaningful in a society growing increasingly religiously pluralistic and disengaged?” In light of the statistics highlighting the growing movement of young Americans away from the church, Patterson explores here this question of meaningful faith for America Magazine, The National Catholic Review. Showcasing the niche role that Still Harbor (yes, that's us!) plays in the current landscape for both the churched and unchurched, she notes: “Discernment, interior life, spiritual formation, contemplation, even vocation are words I seldom hear in church. One hears them at places like Still Harbor, but unless one goes there, would a Catholic be familiar with them?” Where do you find community with which to explore the central questions of life? What tools might offer you support in cultivating your interior life? Explore our website for more information on Still Harbor’s programs.
