Journey Series: You Are the Beloved
How does God see me? How does God feel about me? Who does God say that I am?
Who do I think God is? Who do I say that God is? How do I see and feel about God?
Where is God in relation to me? Where is God when I am suffering? Where is God when I am making mistakes and hurting myself and other people with my meanness, envy, greediness, stinginess, bullying, one-up-manship, etc.?

A Spiritual Journey with a Companion
A spiritual director does not actually “direct” your journey but helps you recognize God’s invitation to move closer to God. The director’s role is to listen and watch with you to help you identify, honor and grow in trust of the particular way in which you experience God. A spiritual director is a companion on your journey with God, as you grow in learning to discern the gifts, invitations and graces that God is offering you. The director accompanies you as your eyes open more and more to see God’s movement in your life and in Creation.
