Spiritual Accompanying and Vocation
- Course Dates: Thu 8 June 2017, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Spiritual direction conversations can be vital when exploring a sense of vocation, whether to a formally recognised ministry, or to a deeper expression of gifts and energies in response to God’s call.
Many people seek guidance when looking for change or a fresh challenge and those in a formal discernment process are often required to be in spiritual direction.
Spiritual directors and others who accompany on a vocational journey may find themselves engaged with issues of hearing and responding to God, the possibility of major change, and experiences of joy and hope as well as perhaps, disappointment or frustration.
The spiritual director is called to be a close companion and soul friend whilst having the wisdom to keep a sense of perspective and on occasions face some difficult conversations.
