The Sustainable Faith School of Spiritual Direction (SOSD)
If you’ve been looking for training in this ancient charism of the church, we’d love to have you join us in the coming year. After the training you’ll find yourself listening to people in a whole new way, one that will serve you well if you’re involved in any form of work or ministry where one-on-one conversation, discernment and prayer matter deeply.
There are a number of Sustainable Faith SOSD's taking place around the country. For a list of those cities and dates, visit the Sustainable Faith web site where you can find out more about Year One and Year Two of the SOSD.
Our training in spiritual direction flows from a trinitarian and christocentric foundation. We believe in the triune God, confessing God as Creator of all, Jesus as God revealed in the flesh, and the Holy Spirit as the gift of God who empowers us to enter into God’s redemptive work in the world.
