Reflect on the following questions, looking for connections between your theology and Chauncy's. You may wish to write your reflections in your theology journal.
- Have you ever had an experience that you would call "spiritual"? If so, describe the experience in your journal. Then, after you have described the experience, define what you mean by the term "spiritual." In other words, use your experience to help you define what you mean by the term "spiritual experience."
- How does human agency, the ability to work toward your own spiritual transformation, show up in your life? Explain. What do you do to begin this process: meditate, pray, go to a religious service, sing in the choir, participate in a small group ministry program? Explain.
