Tending the Call ~ Ongoing Formation for Spiritual Directors - Fall Session (Online)
- Wednesday 09/20/2023 - Wednesday 11/29/2023
- 6:30pm - 8:00pm EST
"Don't ask what the world needs.
Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.
Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." ~ Howard Thurman
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.
This is a time for spiritual directors to delve back into a contemplative study space, deepening understanding about the wisdom of spiritual giants introduced to you in the Spiritual Direction Practicum.
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.
Howard Thurman was an American minister, philosopher, theologian, mystic, educator, and key mentor to many in the nonviolent civil rights movement, including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Join us this fall as we explore his classic, Jesus and the Disinherited, and ask how his insights into what he called the “fundamentally unchained life” might guide how we companion others, especially those communities whose “backs are against the walls.”
