What impact has your Christos Spiritual Direction training through the Tending the Holy program had on your work, your ministry and/or your relationship with God?
I have always been a seeker of deeper spiritual truth, and that is what brought me to Christos. There I learned about, and embraced, solitude and silence which has served me well in my spiritual journey. Through working as a Spiritual Director for many decades, I have had the privilege of listening to people’s faith stories, and many have contributed to my personal growth. As I reflect on the impact Christos has had on my spiritual walk, it is clear that Christos has been at the core of that journey.
