The English word Christfulness sounds like Mindfulness – even though it is a biblical concept (Ephesians 4:13). This similarity is intentional, because we introduce Christian spirituality and understanding of human nature to people seek spiritual practices – whether secular or religious – that might improve their wellbeing in body, mind and spirit.
When we use Christfulness as a term for Christian spirituality we set our practices within a specific Christian worldview and understanding of the human person. We state that we practice our faith with a specific aim: we are aiming at maturity and unity of humans in relation to one another and in relation to the surrounding world. Thus, Christfulness can be understood as a spiritual process towards maturity and wholeness – a process that starts at the individual level but is only fulfilled in relation to others and to God.
We follow 4 phases
- an experience of God’s love in Christ as a protecting and accompanying presence (Christ with me)
- an experience of “Christ in me, the hope of glory” (Christ in me)
- an experience of seeing Christ or the image of God in others (Christ in you), and
- a vision of a redeemed mankind as the body of Christ (Me/us/together in Christ).
Sometimes we are overloaded with work, feel stress and are about to burn out. Maybe it’s time to take a pause, to relax in the presence of the Lord, and to find oneself as a loved and appreciated child of God.
Overnight retreat at TFS
Saturday – Sunday 20-21 April. Theme: Easter
The retreat will give you an introduction to the spiritual practices of Christfulness and the related understanding of human nature. Christfulness will be presented as sharing a new life with Christ. As he suffered, died and rose we are invited to die from our old patterns of guilt and judgements to be free to experience the fulness of life. We participate in the rich Easter Night Service in Christ Temple and have a morning service at the labyrinth.
