The paper then discusses the relevance of metanoia to spiritual growth, the purpose of metanoia and the process that is involved in achieveing it. The concept is discussed according to John Kavanaugh's views as presented in his book, "Following Christ in a Consumer Society."
From the Paper:"Third, the individual puts into practice his or her new vision. Personal metanoia has taken place at this stage. The individual cannot imagine turning back; cannot foresee living life in the old ways through materialistic lenses that devalue innate human dignity. Fourth, the individual becomes a beacon of light. He or she is an example to friends, family, and members of the community. Through whatever means possible, the person initiates metanoia in others. Whether by setting a personal example or by running for public office, the individual has become fully devoted to achieving total societal transformation."
