Spiritual guidance is an ancient tradition practiced by all faiths. For Christians, it’s experienced when someone helps us listen and look for God’s presence in our everyday lives. A spiritual guide or director affirms our inner journey and supports our search for meaning and truth.
Spiritual needs can include:
- the need for meaning and purpose in our lives.
- the need to love and feel loved.
- the need to feel a sense of belonging.
- the need to feel hope, peace and gratitude.
Spiritual direction is the practice of being with people as they attempt to deepen their relationship with the divine, or to learn and grow in their own personal spirituality.
