This was a mystery to me. And it was a mystery to the folks in the Bible study. I was the deaf leading the deaf. This experience set off a chain reaction. ” These weren’t verses any longer about God—they were words to me about the mystery of life with God, and they highlighted one thing—my poverty. But they were also the beginning of a longing for someone who could show me the way. When I wasn’t at the church, I was either visiting or at home with my two young boys. And my growing longing made me ask: What are they learning from me?
But I didn’t, so I went to my default setting: read. Thus began my crash course in spiritual direction. I began reading to learn more about what this kind of spiritual relationship involved, what it would be like, and what would be required of me. I’d already read enough to know that something like spiritual direction was what I was looking for. ” What I discovered surprised me—there is no one way to do spiritual direction, and it takes many shapes. In the Christian tradition it has long been acknowledged (from the days that Jesus himself said “Follow me” and from the time he told his disciples to go and make disciples, teaching, and baptizing, and helping people obey) that the Christian life—that life lived with God through Christ in the Spirit—is a life of apprenticeship.
