Growing in Faith Journey Group: An Introduction to Group Spiritual Direction
Rev. Darrow and the Trinity United Christian Development Committee are offering a special learning opportunity for the Lent/Easter season:
Monday evenings, 7 pm to 9:30 pm, from February 25 to March 25
Learn about, and experience Group Spiritual Direction, a powerful way to grow in our walk with God, and to be of help to others.
Group spiritual direction is a process in which people gather together on a regular basis to assist one another in an ongoing awareness of God in all of life. They are seeking support for their responsiveness to God and they agree to support others in that same responsiveness. Three conditions are essential to the life of the group. Members must agree to:
- commit themselves to an honest relationship with God
- to participate wholeheartedly in the group process through prayerful listening and response
- to open their spiritual journeys for consideration by others

Enrollment will be limited, so please speak with Rev. Darrow if you think this may be for you. You do not have to be a member of Trinity to take part in this group. It is helpful to have an active connection with the faith community of your choice, as you live out the first condition for involvement in this class, which is commitment to an honest relationship with God.
