Spiritual Direction Offering. What is “spiritual direction”? Most
basically, it is sitting down with a trusted Christian person in a confidential setting
and discussing one’s prayer life, what is happening in one’s Christian pilgrimage, and
how God may be acting and making Godself known in one’s life. It can take place
once a month or once every few months, even on an irregular basis. This is not about
interminable psychotherapy, but rather relatively infrequent meetings, which can enable
real spiritual friendship to develop over a period of time. If you think you might be
interested in exploring spiritual direction, you may talk with or contact Rev. Jill
at 973-819-5191. As well as having a PhD in Psychology and Religion from
Union Seminary, she received training in spiritual direction at the Center For Christian
Spirituality at General Seminary.
