You’d think that as the ‘S’-word is part of my job title, I’d be a good person to answer that question, but I’m reminded of the conversation in ‘Through the Looking Glass’. “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.”

For me, Spirituality has to be understood as something which is life-giving, contributes to growth and development and helps to sustain hope.

The first of these is implicit in both the Greek and Hebrew words which translate as spirit – they’re to do with air and breath, one of the necessities of life.

Spirituality is a dynamic idea; it implies movement rather than standing still. So growing and developing as people, at whatever stage of life we are, is linked to spirituality.

And finally, there is hope – the idea that keeps us looking outwards, alive to the possibility that here and now is never the totality of what life is all about.
