on Spirituality

Spirituality is always in danger of self-absorption, of becoming so intrigued with matters of soul that God is treated as a mere accessory to my experience.  This requires much vigilance.  Spiritual theology is, among other things, the exercise of this vigilance.  Spiritual theology is the discipline and art of training us into a full and mature participation in Jesus’ story while at the same time preventing us from taking over the story
