Title: What’s Your Spiritual Style?
Materials: Digital Illustration
Description: We all serve and worship the same God, but have you noticed how we each relate to God differently? God has made us all unique, enabling us to relate or draw closer to Him in specific ways. Which of these 9 spiritual styles do you identify with? Let’s embrace the uniqueness God has given to each one of us and support our fellow brothers and sisters as they relate to Him.

    Mine is 1,3,5 and 7. It’s a big change from a lively church style to a traditional church. The rituals at the traditional church ministers better to me because I find modern music noisy and gives me headache. I think it’s something to do with ageing.
