This Advent, come learn how Spiritual Direction can heighten your expectation and readiness for God’s coming. Let by Wendy Dixon at CTR on Saturday, December 10th from 9am til 12:15pm.
“As Anglicans, we believe that God speaks to each of us because the Spirit is still alive and interacts with us – Yes, through the Word; Yes, in worship and in the sacred – but also personally as well… In Spiritual Direction, which is not counseling and not teaching, the spiritual director (someone who is trained) helps us find God’s voice in our own life and to find the path of His working. In sharing your story, in sharing where God seems to be in that story, the spiritual director helps you see where the common threads of God’s work might be, and helps you be open to that thread and respond.” (Fr. Tim Clayton)
“We define Christian Spiritual Direction, then, as 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.” (Barry and Connolly, The Practice of Spiritual Direction, p. 8)
