Tending the Call ~ Ongoing Formation for Spiritual Directors (Online) Fall Session)
- Tuesday 09/07/2021 - Tuesday 11/16/2021
- 6:30pm - 8:00pm EST
Are there moments in your spiritual direction ministry when you feel a desire to deepen your understanding of the wisdom of the spiritual giants and contemplative practices introduced in the Spiritual Direction Practicum?
Tending the Call invites you to join a community of Spiritual Directors who feel called to revisit the teachings of foundational companions and re-imagine ways they can support your present-day ministries.
We invite you to share, study, and pray with a sacred community of practicing Spiritual Directors from the Dominican Center for Spirituality, as we seek a deepening relationship with God and are reminded of the journey of transformation that first called us to the practice of spiritual direction.
Let nothing disturb you.
Let nothing make you afraid.
All things are passing.
God alone never changes.
Patience gains all things.
If you have God you will want for nothing.
God alone suffices.
~ St. Teresa of Ávila
