Fondly Remembering School of Spiritual Direction - Class of October 2009
A year ago, I was down in Colorado Springs, Colorado, at the beautiful Glen Eyrie Retreat and Conference Center. I was there sitting under the teaching of Dr. Larry Crabb along with 29 other students. I was in a triad with Page and Jason, who I loved being with. I felt like the "mom" with the two youngest in the class - but man, did I learn from them! And, I was one of 2 Canadians!!
The School of Spiritual Direction was timely - coming at the close of my pastoral position at McIvor. Timely as I walked along the long deep valley of grief. It was timely as I was closing one chapter and following God in the next.
I loved being there. I loved learning from Dr. Crabb. Man, he brought the Word to LIFE!!
I loved being with young and old alike - learning, laughing, weeping...
I loved being in such a beautiful beautiful setting, and feeling refreshed, renewed and refueled.
Today I think back - and tomorrow I plan to pull my binder out.... it is time for a good review!
As I reflect on this Thanksgiving Day - I look back, and I am thankful for all God has done in my life - and all He is doing - and all He is going to do! I have a strong sense that what I learned last year at SSD will be put to use in women's ministry! Thank you Lord!
