The heart of Spiritual Direction is intimacy with God. He speaks in deeply personal ways, but distinguishing His Voice amidst the cacophony of others is challenging. Spiritual Direction creates sacred space to grow in familiarity with that Voice, its tones of delight and compassion which are ours through the abiding work of Jesus Christ. I’ve had the privilege of companioning others through various ministry vehicles over the last 15 years (Young Life, the church, etc.), and my one constant has been a posture of contemplative listening. Having a front row seat to someone’s growing intimacy with Jesus never gets old!
