Spiritual guidance and direction is the art of assisting another person to notice and respond to the presence and leading of God in the middle of ordinary life. It is an ancient tradition taking on current form with the assistance of twenty-first century knowledge, skills, and language. The word "God" can be replaced by many other words: creator, great spirit, father/mother, higher power, inner light, holy spirit, inner teacher, wisdom, the holy, etc. - a life force that is in and through creation. It is holy mystery, divine love, spirit of life, in whom, as the apostle Paul says, we "live and move and have our being."
Spiritual guidance sessions can be arranged either individually or in a group with Martha Martin, Minister of Education and Care at St. Andrew's, a graduate of the Atlantic Jubilee Program in Spiritual Deepening and Spiritual Guidance.
