MIGHT JESUS BE INVITING YOU TO BE TRAINED IN THE ART OF SPIRITUAL COMPANIONSHIP?
In our busy society, we rarely take time to stop long enough to take a breath, let alone give some extra time to turn our ears toward Jesus. Learning the fine art of spiritual direction (companionship) is one of the best ways you can help both yourself and others “step out of traffic to take a long, loving look at your High God” (Psalm 46:10 The Message Bible)
An experience in our Sustainable Faith School of Spiritual Direction (SOSD) offers participants an immersive, integrated and robust introduction to the ministry of spiritual direction. Through the combined experience of reading superb literature, engaging in individual and group exercises, paying close attention to one’s life, practicing spiritual disciplines, receiving spiritual direction, and offering direction – all in a communal setting – students move toward competency as spiritual directors.
5 MODULES – 10 TRANSFORMING DAYS – 1 REMARKABLE YEAR – ALL ON-LINE!
As a wise person once suggested, you will always find a silver lining in every dark cloud. Or, as St. Ignatius said it, “God is in ALL things!”
Without a doubt, COVID-19 has made life very difficult, and as we see it, produced so much pain and loss in so many people’s lives, the need for Christ-centered, compassionate and caring spiritual companionship will be overwhelming going forward beyond the storm.
Here at Sustainable Faith, Sandy & I, over much of the last six years, had been conducting our trainings in person. But of course, that all changed in March 2019 when COVID hit.
Yet, here’s the silver lining.
Since we started facilitating our trainings on-line, we are finding that this unique approach to our curriculum is not only accommodating students well, it’s actually allowing many more students to participate than when we limited cohort participation to being in person! Actually, we’ve had many tells us that this new, on-line option was a God-send, providing a practical way for them to do something they just couldn’t do when our training was offered only on-location!
So with that…going forward, Sandy & I will be doing our Sustainable Faith training cohorts in spiritual direction exclusively, on-line.
