space for God


solitude with God repairs the damage done
by the fret, noise, and clamor of this world

Oswald Chambers

One way to hear God is to hear Him in the sound of silence.

Space for God - Space with God is the simple meaning of

Vacare Deo.

Vacare Deo - providing space and time to be with God.

sometimes it feels like a longing for “I don’t know quite what.”

What if these longings and desires are actually personal invitations, from TRANSCENDENce, to come awake?

Sometimes the awakening begins with disquieting questions which steal in our consciousness:

  • Who am I?

  • Why do I exist?

  • Who or what is God?

  • Is it possible to know and experience God beyond just information about him?

These are important, life- informing questions which need to be engaged, not ignored.

to engage, it is good to do so in the presence of others. they help us navigate these bumpy transitions. spiritual Directions offers people space and time to engage these interior “movements” of the soul.

Spiritual direction creates space and time to Retreat from the noise of life in order to process, with another person, these soul-tugs. Directors are people who are compassionately present, gifted, and skilled in offering gentle spiritual guidance.

I invite you to spend some time on the website exploring the information about spiritual direction, formation, and retreats. If you would like to engage in a conversation around these or explore questions, longings, and desires, please contact me.
