People with a Reflective FaithStyle start to question their own assumptions around the faith tradition they have been brought up in. Not only do they reexamine their own assumptions they also question the authority structures of their faith.
A Reflective FaithStyle can help you gain greater maturity in your faith when you start rejecting some parts of the assumptions of faith that you held without examining them while affirming other parts. In the end, you are starting to take greater ownership of your own faith journey.
At first a Reflective FaithStyle can be a time of angst and struggle. You are taking more and more personal responsibility for your beliefs and feelings. You are busy carrying out in depth exploration of your own values and religious beliefs.
Because you are taking up responsibility for making explicit choices of your beliefs and lifestyle it opens the way for critically self-aware commitments in relationship and life’s purpose.
