Reflections on Spirituality and the Church
Kelly, Anthony. (2004) Reflections on Spirituality and the Church. Compass: a review of topical theology. 38(3), pp. 19 - 27.
IN THIS ARTICLE I ponder upon the separation occurring between spirituality and ecclesial existence. In contesting generalisations such as ‘organised religion’ and ‘institutional Church’, I argue for a more ecclesial spirituality and point to some of the pitfalls involved in a ‘generic’ spirituality, especially to the problem of it being colonised by political ideologies. I would like to suggest a number of talking points for the conversation between an ecclesial Christian faith and the expanding phenomenon of spirituality.
