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.

As the Michaelmas 2013 term concludes, you might wish to express your gratitude for the ministry of the spiritual directors by making a financial gift towards their honoraria. All gifts are welcome, even modest ones. You may make a tax-deductible gift by writing a check payable to “General Theological Seminary” with the notation “Spiritual Directors” in the memo line and giving it to the Institutional Advancement office in Seabury Hall. Or you may contribute online, designating your gift toward the Center for Christian Spirituality. Thank you!
