On Saturday afternoon I completed Year 1 of my spiritual direction training. What a beautiful nine months these have been for me! There has been lots of reading, of practicing spiritual direction on “guinea pigs”, of writing, of discussion and camaraderie in our cohort as we listen to the Lord’s work in our own lives and in others’.
We were given an hour to reflect on the major take-a-ways of this year, pieces we want to hold onto and not forget. As I lean into this ministry of spiritual direction, however this looks in the future, I want to always come back to the fact that God is speaking and that in each person is the face of Christ.
How thankful I am for meeting these people, and hopefully continuing to journey with them, whether near or far away.
