Overview

During the past 30 years, a quiet revolution has taken place in Christianity. People of all ages are finding the need for daily prayer. Many are encountering Jesus anew through ancient yet new forms of prayer.

“Quiet Pentecosts” (experiences of the Holy Spirit's power at work) are happening as Christians engage in spiritual practices. These included meditative reading of scripture, walking the labyrinth, prayerful listening to one another, spiritual direction, and more.

At a time when denominations are declining and the church seems to be fighting to survive, Dwight Judy sees hope for the future in the practices of spiritual formation.

“The practices of spiritual formation … take us outside of the noisy and frenetic activity our popular culture encourages,” Judy writes. “We need to be taught how to be together in a spirit of respectful listening to one another. We will not learn this art from our television commentators. We will rarely witness such moments of genuine care in national or international politics.”
