What is Spiritual Direction?
Life is full of spiritual uncertainty—situations in which we are unsure of who God is, confused about what God is doing in our circumstances, or generally dry in our relationship with God. Spiritual direction is a safe place to explore your questions and concerns about your life and God-with God; it’s “help given by one Christian to another which enables that person to pay attention to God’s personal communication to him or her, to respond to this personally communicating God, to grow in intimacy with this God, and to live out the consequences of the relationship.” (William A. Barry and William J. Connolly, The Practice of Spiritual Direction)
Whether you seek a spiritual director during a specific season of your life or engage with one as part of your regular spiritual practices, spiritual direction is beneficial in many ways. It can connect you in relationship with:
Someone with a perspective outside of your normal circles.
Someone who reminds you of the basics—God’s love, care and constancy through all of life’s circumstances.
Someone to stay awake with you on the road when you are spiritually weary.
Someone to celebrate God’s work of transformation with you and for you.
A typical session lasts 60 minute and I offer both in-person or virtual sessions. All are welcome.
