At the request of members of the seminary community, Westina Matthews has added Thursday evening appointments, once a month, to her availability for spiritual direction appointments. Any member of the GTS community—student, professor, staff member, or family member—is welcome to meet occasionally or regularly (usually once a month) with any of the three spiritual directors who are ministering to the seminary community in this Michaelmas 2013 term: Barbara Crafton, Louise Litke, and Westina Matthews. Their ministry is a gift from the seminary to you.
Spiritual direction is about holy companionship as you grow in authenticity and relationship with God. A spiritual director is someone with whom you can speak confidentially and honestly about your experiences of God, who will accompany you as you explore your spirituality, and to whom you can be accountable in your spiritual practices. A spiritual director will listen as you share your interior life, notice how God is present for you, teach and encourage you to try new ways of praying, and help you discern God’s good purposes for you.
