How does God fit into your life journey?

Hagan_RosemarySpiritual Direction is a ministry that helps a person in his or her efforts towards becoming “a human being fully alive.” In our busy lives it is often difficult to hear the gentle voice of the Holy Spirit. Spiritual Direction can help one to be more attentive and responsive to the promptings of the Spirit.

The primary focus is on deepening one’s relationship with God and growing in awareness of God’s living presence in the ordinary events of life. This leads to an even deeper and more realistic understanding of who we are in relationship to God, self, and others.

The director/companion listens, asks questions, and at times offers suggestions to help the person grow in prayer and relationship with God, self, and others. This conversation allows the person to discover his/her own inner voice and wisdom from God deep within.

Spiritual Direction gives a person an opportunity to share one’s story and faith journey. Regularly scheduled visits allow for ongoing attentiveness to one’s personal experience, thus uncovering the ways by which God speaks to us and invites us to a deepening union.
