As is true for many of us, I bring a unique blend of experiences to my Spiritual Direction work. This allows me to reflect upon things from multiple perspectives.
As clients share about situations, I sometimes find myself offering to speak into their experience “wearing a variety of hats.” For example, a Career Coach might say…a mentor might say…a Spiritual Director might say…
Let’s take an example of a pastor dealing with a difficult church member on their board.
A mentor might say–As their pastor, Lord give me the eyes to see them in their brokenness. Lord how do you see them? How may I or others minister to them?
A career coach might say–How does this situation relate to my career as a pastor? How am I being stretched to learn new skills here?
A Spiritual Director might say–As a child of God, how do I cooperate with you Lord in what you are up to in my very soul? I wonder why this situation so difficult for me?
