Got a Yardstick?
I was involved a few years ago with someone’s doctoral research in psychology where he was trying to guage how those of us going through a program in spirituality were developing spiritually. There was a series of questions about how you thought about this or that, how you felt about or experienced God… It begs the question: can spiritual maturity be quantitatively measured? If so, what are the dimensions to be measured? If not, is there a good way to qualitatively measure it? What terminology do you use in that case?
