Spiritual formation in the middle-adult years: a parish-based model
Martha Means Blount
This project proposes a comprehensive, threefold parish plan designed to help midlife people nurture faith as they reassess, rethink, and repurpose their lives. Based on the contributions of developmental psychology and biblical images of midlife spiritual formation, the plan offers a weekly class to study midlife characteristics, a small group to learn spiritual discipline, regular times to share faith stories, and intentional settings to offer acts of compassion. Works by Erik H Erikson, Daniel J Levinson, Carol Gilligan, and Jürgen Moltmann inform the project model.
