Reflection on Soul Friends – Companions for the Inner Way
Our prayerful Meditation and Contemplation will consider the term “spiritual direction”
What is it exactly?
How can it help me on my spiritual journey?
Where can I find a spiritual director?
During our reflection, Andy Crosland will shed light on these and other questions regarding the practice of “spiritual direction” which dates back to the Desert Mothers and Fathers.
And, incorporated into the reflection will be a short session conducted by Gail McCormick and Sue Perrin.
Perhaps considering a Soul Friend to accompany and guide us as we continue along the Inner Way
might be a wonderful New Year’s resolution to consider!
Andy teaches Spiritual Direction with the Haden Institute in Hendersonville, North Carolina;
Gail is a graduate of the Education For Ministry Program offered by The University of The South and
Sue is a graduate of the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation in Washington, D.C.
A portion of the offering collected Sunday evening has been designated for the Citizens Scholar Program
– honoring Andy, Gail and Sue for sharing their creative energy with us.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU SUNDAY EVENING!
