Spiritual direction is an ancient art of being with another person in relationship with God. As we struggle in the church to develop meaningful and lasting relationships, this spiritual practice has much to offer us. It is another way of patiently sitting with another soul listening for Gods voice and looking for Gods leading in a persons life. The small group phenomenon has taken root in many different Christian communities in the US and abroad. However, there have been pitfalls encountered along the way. This book will equip leaders to facilitate their groups with new lenses and methods. It examines the strengths and weaknesses in groups and why spiritual direction complements the efforts of group leadership.
Heather Webb is a spiritual director and an ordained minister in the PCUSA who holds a masters in counseling degree from Colorado Christian University and a doctor of ministry degree from San Francisco Theological Seminary. She is a licensed professional counselor.
