Traditional: Joshua 4:6-7  6 . . . In the future, when your children ask you, ‘What do these stones mean?’ 7 tell them that the flow of the Jordan was cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord. When it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. These stones are to be a memorial to the people of Israel forever. ”Joshua 4:6-7

 

Rituals, symbols, sacraments, and sacrifices are significant components of the spiritual pathway of the Traditionalist. Worshipping God in a structured format is a profound experience for the Traditionalist. The creeds, catechisms, and liturgies are powerful expressions of belief for the Traditionalists. Praying the prayers of Christians from earlier centuries adds depth and texture to a Traditionalist’s faith. Meditating on Scripture nourishes the Traditionalist’s soul. Traditionalists value rituals for adding structure to their faith and symbols for adding deeper meaning to what they believe.

Caregiver: Luke 10:33-34 “33But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him.

 

Providing for the needs of others is the Caregiver’s act of worship. Meeting needs in the name of Jesus becomes a threshold to intimacy with God. Caregivers often find meeting needs of others to be a life-giving gift to themselves. They are ones who, truly, in the giving receive more than they give.

Activist: Isaiah 6:8 “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!’”

 

Moses, Elijah and Habakkuk paved the way for Activists. Like these patriarchs from Biblical times, Activists are movers and shakers in the Christian community, meeting God in the vortex of confrontation. For an Activist worship is taking a stand against injustice and sin and addressing family, community and global issues. It is in this setting that an Activist actually experiences God as authentic, exciting, imminent and relevant.

Sensate: Ezekiel 3:2-3 “2So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat. 3Then he said to me, “Son of man, eat this scroll I am giving you and fill your stomach with it.” So I ate it, and it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth.”

 

The Bible teaches us to love God with both our mind and our heart. People who live in the world of senses need truth embodied as more than a concept. They must feel and experience Scripture, sacraments and creeds. Images are essential for Sensates to experience truth. God fashioned their hearts to be stimulated by their senses, thus awakening them to His presence.

Ascetic: Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

 

Alone, in the stillness of a personal sanctuary, an Ascetic delights in praying in silence and simplicity. Escaping from the noise of the world, this person finds peace and shelter in an isolated, protected corner of his/her own environment. Released from the rituals of religious practices, an Ascetic is able to express the adoration and longings of his/her heart in whispers and melodies and moans that are meant solely for the ears of the Lord. It is in a quiet, dimmed, hushed room that he/she pours out his/her heart to God and feels his love flow back into his/her own soul.

Intellectual: Romans 12:2 “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

 

Reading, studying, researching, debating and analyzing text is what invigorates Intellectuals and increases their love for God. Time stands still for them when they are engaged in a scholarly process of deciphering the truth and/or falsehood of a challenging concept. Intellectuals thrive in an academic environment. “Love the Lord your God with all your mind …”37 may be their favorite Biblical teaching! “Faith is something to be understood as much as experienced.”

Contemplative: Luke 2:19 “But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.”

Contemplatives’ pathway is one of being, not of doing. They are normally driven by an indescribable depth of spirituality that is profound, intense, wholesome and pure. To feed his/her spiritual soul, a Contemplative must have quiet space in which he/she can privately gaze upon the face of Jesus, the Lover of his/her soul.

Naturalist: Psalm 19:1 “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”

 

Naturalists describe being outdoors—in a grassy meadow, along a riverbank, on a mountaintop—as being in God’s cathedral. “God is!” resounds from the soul of the Naturalist as he/she digests the beauty of the world God created. In contrast to the church building with its stained-glass windows, pipe organ, elaborate podium, and padded or unpadded benches (where one might have to observe an acceptable dress code), the Naturalist is most blessed when he/she enters the outdoor sanctuary (clad in jeans and athletic shoes) designed and developed by the Master Architect.
