An Introduction to Spiritual Direction

May's focus will be on the role of Spiritual Direction in cultivating an increased awareness of God's active presence.  While we may know intellectually that Immanuel is always with us, most of us can point to few, if any, conscious interactions we have had with Him.

Vicki Buras and Sue Sather, certified spiritual directors, will provide a taste of Spiritual Direction and how it could play a vital role in your spiritual health as a caregiver as well as a referral resource to complement your ministry.  Come experience Immanuel Texting as a way to connect with God in the dailyness of life.
