Spiritual Direction is the art of assisting a person in articulating a truth that is already bubbling up within them, longing to be realized.
— Caroline Myss
 

Have you heard of Spiritual Direction but wonder what it is?  Come to Jesus House and learn about this ancient ministry of the Christian community.  Simply, Spiritual Direction is the process of accompanying people on their spiritual journey. In the midst of this fast-paced world, people find it difficult to be aware of God’s action in their daily lives and in simple everyday events. The spiritual director is there to listen and reflect through conversation on one’s relationship with God. Gradually, you learn to recognize God’s tender and powerful presence in your life. You discover that God has been waiting for you to look for this closer relationship. The leaders will provide more details about a session and will respond to all questions.
