Guest Blog: Five Reasons for Evangelicals to Explore the ancient art of Spiritual Direction
Guest Blog: Please meet my colleague Dr. Rev. Saundra Biltz. She works as an ecumenical Spiritual Director in private practice. Saundra is also an ordained minister, Bible instructor and medical professional with 30 years of experience.
“Spiritual Direction is a ministry that has deep roots in our Christian heritage. The Protestant reformation addressed some flaws in medieval Christianity, however in the haste to get rid of all things “Catholic,” we lost a few spiritually enriching practices that can benefit us today. Here are my top five reasons why Evangelicals should explore the ministry of Spiritual Direction.
Spiritual Direction can introduce you to the historical Christian disciplines and practices that were lost after the Protestant Reformation.
You can get a deeper revelation of the humanity of Jesus.
You get to explore the fears, doubts, and questions you have about your faith in a safe, nonjudgmental and confidential environment.
You get unstuck from spiritual ruts, for example when your normal prayer routine is not bringing you life!
You can get healed from hurts that you have experienced in your community of faith.”
