What is Biblical spirituality? Seventh-day Adventists speak of spiritual experience, of feeling God’s presence, but in practice much of our spirituality seems rooted in doctrines and interpretation. Ellen White encourages us to experience God, but also says we shouldn’t trust feelings and experiences. Our top church leaders warn against meditation and mysticism. And many of us find it easier to root our faith in cognitive explanations about God. Dr. Katrina Blue led us in a discussion of what spirituality means for Seventh-day Adventists.
