Spirit Time at the ADS
Our clients really engage themselves in this process as I discuss human challenges that can be more fully addressed when the spiritual side of us is also involved. We discuss courage and its importance in life, where it comes from, and how it blesses us. We openly name stressors such as loneliness, uncertainty, and letting go while considering how our relationship with these concerns may or may not change over the years. We explore how there is more to life than sight, touch, and power, and how the process of maturity and aging makes us more open to The Beyond.
Spirit Time is not about converting others to our way of thinking, but about inviting and empowering all of God’s people to meet the challenges of this life with the transcendent power of faith in Something Greater Than Ourselves. It has been my great personal joy to watch our clients respond so deeply.
