Spiritual Direction: An Invitation to Grace
Spiritual direction is a ministry of contemplative presence, an ongoing process of self-discovery and deepening relationship with God. In confidential, one-on-one meetings between a qualified director and a directee, the relationship focuses on guidance in recognizing and responding to God’s moment-by-moment presence in the directee’s life. As unique as the individuals involved, each relationship honors the diversity of the human spirit and the many ways in which God offers grace and love.
Referrals for Spiritual Direction
As you seek a spiritual director, we desire to help you. In the Texas Annual Conference, our Gathered Community of Spiritual Directors refers spiritual directors living in covenant. Our covenant spiritual directors agree to live by a communal rule of life and to fully and completely follow the ethical guidelines of Spiritual Directors International.We recommend that you ask anyone you are considering as a spiritual director if they follow ethical guidelines.
If you are interested in
- talking about how spiritual direction might assist you in your spiritual journey,
- finding a covenant spiritual director in your geographical area or one who offers various technological options,
- finding a presenter for a spiritual formation workshop or day of prayer
- joining our community of trained spiritual directors so that you can be referred as a TAC Covenant Spiritual Director. ALL trained spiritual directors in any program and of any faith tradition are invited to join us for continuing education, days of renewal, and online prayer without joining our covenant. Sign up to be added to "The Gathered Community of Spiritual Directors" mailing list.
If you have questions or want more information, please contact Rev. Cindy Serio, Gathered Community Coordinator, via phone 832-330-3973 or email at email@example.com.
