Sacred Conversation

Exploring the Seven Gifts of Spiritual Direction  
Marsha Crockett

Some of these fellow pilgrims—spiritual directors—are called to walk the spiritual path with others. The spiritual director, however, does not seek to tell their counterpart how to live out the faith. Instead, the spiritual director accompanies others on their spiritual journey and helps them discover ...

Everyday Contemplative

The Way of Prayerful Living  
L. Roger Owens
What does it mean to live a contemplative life? How does someone become contemplative? Does being contemplative mean sitting around thinking about God all day?

God may be found just as easily in an office cubicle, a donut shop, or a laundry room as in a m...

Five Loaves, Two Fish, Twelve Volunteers

Growing a Relational Food Ministry  
Elizabeth Mae Magill
Sixty-two percent of food pantries and meal programs in the United States are faith-based. Most of these ministries are transactional; people needing food interact with church volunteers to earn access to direct service. Elizabeth Magill advocates relational ministry as a better model for food ministry. People donating food or money eat with the people who need food and get to know them as they serve alongside them. Those needing food share all aspects of the ministry, including planning, set...
