spir·i·tu·al·i·ty spIr-I-t ʃ -u:ˈwa-lə-ti: Put definitions so far in position to be read by others. Look at hand-out with some dictionary definitions. What ideas or aspects do you want to include in your own definition? Is there anything you might want to change or leave out? Write a new definition to share with the whole class.

spir·i·tu·al·i·ty spIr-I-t ʃ -u:ˈwa-lə-ti: New tack. Thinking about our own stuff. When you pray, how do you name God? What title/s, image/s, metaphor/s do you normally use?
