Spiritual Direction

Do you desire to…

…be aware of the presence of God in your everyday life?
…live your life more fully?
…know what are God’s dreams and desires for you?
...find answers to the ultimate question in your life?

If so, then you might consider spiritual direction.

Throughout Christian history there has been a lively tradition of believers, and those who have their doubts, seeking women and men who are willing to listen with compassion, acceptance and a deep interest to the events of their lives. When we are able to look at our lives without judgment or criticism, we are often able to notice the presence of God and discover the invitation of God’s spirit. We are then free to respond.

People who come to direction are often surprised to discover how actively they are already involved with God in the reality of their lives and how much there is to say about this relationship.

A spiritual director has received training in this specialized ministry and is committed to developing their own relationship with God through prayer and receiving their own spiritual direction. They participate in ongoing and confidential supervision of their work with a trained supervisor. Clear vision, a discerning heart and a desire to grow are what make a director’s training fruitful for others.
