I hope it will become even clearer as we continue that these three dynamics — the relational, transformational, and vocational — are always vitally connected, overlapping, and interdependent. It is not possible to choose one and neglect the others. Bringing these three themes together as we conclude, we can say that authentic Christian spirituality (or the Christian life, which is the same thing) is a Spirit-enabled relationship with the triune God that results in openness to others, healing progress toward Christlikeness, and willing participation in God’s purposes in the world.

It is true that people have different comfort levels when it comes to things like hospitality or solitude. But the important thing to remember is that these are merely distinctions of temperament.

As God’s image-bearers, we are all designed for connection with others.
