Moving in a different direction...

I am writing this entry because on the 1st of August I made mention of a three year Spiritual Direction training program that I am in. And I explained why I was looking forward to starting Year Two in September.

Four days after that entry, I was introduced to new information about the program. After two weeks of prayer and conversation with many people, I have decided not to return in September.

I feel obligated to give an update here since I had asked for prayer in the prior blog entry.

I'm not comfortable sharing the reasons for my decision in this format.

My new prayer request is that if I am to participate in Spiriutal Direction training that the Lord will direct me to a place that is a good fit for me and provide the resources for the both the program and any travel it may involve. I'm in no hurry to make any decisions.

I was just reading about a course with Dr. Larry Crabb on Christiancourses.com called SoulCare. I believe it is about spiritual direction. It sounds very interesting and reasonably priced. After completion of the four online courses, there is a week long session in Colorado. Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but I thought I'd share. Enjoying your blog!

Hi Aneta,

I am familar with Larry Crabb. It is one of the programs I am considering. I have a friend who recently attended. We haven't had a chance to really sit down and talk in any detail about her experiences there.

Are you thinking about attending a Spiritual Direction training course?
