The Spiritual Care Committee

BY SCHOOL OF THE SPIRIT MINISTRY

Brief Description:
"The words in this pamphlet have come from years of listening to and observing the interactions of participants in the School of the Spirit Ministry's On Being a Spiritual Nurturer program and their Spiritual Care Committees. The Spiritual Care Committee consists of those Friends and others that walk with the participant and witness their journey toward transformation. We have learned valuable lessons and skills that we believe others might find useful and we offer them herein."

GLOSSARY

CORE CHARACTERISTICS

The words have their roots in a particular way of knowing. In the School of the Spirit Ministry , the journey toward transformation is interpreted using a certain language and understanding of story. That language and story is what Quakers have used since their formational days, which is the language of Christianity and the still unfolding Judeo Christian story. We would not be honest with ourselves or the user of this document if we did not name the place from which our knowing comes, which is Christ, the Inward Teacher, whose immediate and perceptible guidance in all things moves us into prayer, worship, and service. We have labored to make the language of the document accessible to all readers without denying the Truth of our own knowing.

Enter with an open heart. The journey of transformation is subverted if the heart is not open to hear anotherís song. We invite the user of this document into the freedom of the open space of Truth where all languages spoken from the Heart are heard by the One Creator of us all. Therein, we abide in unity and love and understanding, and beyond words. .
