As caregivers in ministry settings, others come to us for pastoral, spiritual and emotional support. When the needs of others appear endless it may be difficult for ministry personnel to take time for SPIRITUAL PRACTICES to replenish our spiritual well. This monthly spiritual direction and support group is a guided opportunity to explore a variety of themes and practices as they impact our professional and personal lives. Sessions will include spiritual practices and discussion in large and small groups. A safe space is created for participants to bring their honest reflections, experiences and questions to the group.
