Nor is it counseling or therapy. Although the physical environment may feel similar to a counseling session, the goal is not to solve any particular problems. The goal is to grow closer to the Lord.
Joining with another into the sacred places of the soul, trusting another with one’s heart, one’s secret longings, one’s intimate struggles and spiritual victories- this is holy ground handled with great care and professionalism by the spiritual director. Confidentiality and safety are ensured throughout the process. Sessions typically occur monthly and last one hour.
As Christians, we are all on a journey; a journey meant to be lived out in authentic, accountable community. Spiritual direction is just one tool, but an important time-tested tool, in support of this journey.
