A spiritual director is a coach, guide, friend. It’s someone that’s probably a little bit further along on the journey who can help lead through all the twists and turns. It’s someone that you intentionally meet with every 6-8 weeks for prayer, direction, support. It’s someone who listens, cares, questions and counsels. It’s someone you trust and respect and are willing to follow. It doesn’t have to or need to be a clergy member. Often, the best directors are not clergy.
