In the U.S., the top three most practiced religions include Evangelical Christianity, Roman Catholic Christianity, and Mormonism. It is no surprise to any of us how conflicting some of the “Christian” messages are in our cultural and political milieu today.
In this module, we begin to explore what practicing spiritual guidance with Christians looks like, as well as what Christian spiritual guidance looks like. We will be introduced to a range of Christian denominations and become aware of our responses as we interact with the various voices.
And, as we consider practicing spiritual guidance with Christians, we recognize that you may have a history that includes some hurt from Christians. We also acknowledge that you may have grief and anger that come from people and/or experiences labeled Christian. Please give yourself some space to grieve and heal any self/judgment or spiritual abuse that you may have experienced in your life.
In our listening practices, we’ll explore the process of asking “good questions” within the SG session. Our webinar on Jan. 30 will be invaluable for this!

Please try to post module-based questions here, rather than sending us a separate e-mail. It will be easier to keep Q & A in one place, so everyone benefits. Of course, if you have a question of a more personal nature, please e-mail us.
We hope you will check in once each week to let us know how you are doing and to connect with your classmates.
Let the conversation begin! We welcome your thoughts and look forward to chatting it up with you!
