Spiritual Direction is a privileged time and place to reflect with another about your relationship with God. The focus is your life with God as it is lived out in all of our daily experiences. God is always active in our lives. Often we miss how involved He is and how loved we are because we simply do not pay attention. Meeting regularly with a spiritual director to focus on how God is working through the events of our lives helps us to see His presence more clearly and to cooperate with His will and plan for our lives. The director needs spiritual training, a knowledge of the religious heritage of the Christian tradition and human development, and must demonstrate recognized gifts for this ministry. The director stands in service of the relationship between God and the one seeking direction and is not someone who tells another what to do or what path they should be pursuing.
