Spiritual formation, the pathway to spiritual maturity, is for many of us both personal journey and pedagogical challenge. It is our own desire to “grow up into Christ” (Eph 4:15), but we also have responsibility to cast the vision for and facilitate the process of spiritual formation in the lives of students preparing for Christian ministry. This paper will seek to explore issues associated with spiritual maturity as telos and spiritual formation as process, using psychological concepts such as attachment and differentiation of self and the theological concept of covenant, with particular reference to covenanted sexual relationality.
