Abstract

The Holy Spirit and spirituality in theological training. This aticle discusses the theme "spirituality" in terms of changing paradigms. The author argues that the present-day holistic perspective of spirituality can be regarded as a phenomenon of postmodernity. Aspects of this paradigm are: the emphasis on the relationship between the work of God's Spirit and human beings' encounter with God, as well as the relationship between human beings and God's creation. This indicates a holistic perspective on reality. The author discusses the question regarding spiritualiy in the context of the theological training of ministers of the Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerk. The shift from moderniy to postmoderniy demands a rethinking of theological training. In theological training there should also be time for meditation. Theologians who want to speak about God should make time to listen of God.
