About Spiritual Direction – from Pastor Diane Hooge, Pilgrim Lutheran Renewer-in-Residence


One of the joys of serving Pilgrim Lutheran over this summer, as one of the Renewers-in-Residence, is that it opened the door for me to explore opportunities to “hold the space” for people to do their own spiritual work.  I so appreciated having the time and space to set up a half-day retreat, and I appreciated the response of those who chose to explore Spiritual Direction work. I feel called to listen to others who are seeking to be more intentional in exploring their inner lives.   It’s out of having a listening presence that one often is enabled to discern the movement of God’s Spirit within their life.   Based on this summer’s experience, I’ve been asked if I would consider continuing the work.  After meeting with Pastor Carol, we agreed that this spiritual practice is important to continue to be made available to the Pilgrim community. I will charge the same amount as Pilgrim was paying during the sabbatical which was $50.00 a session.  I will continue the process set this summer which was to schedule appointments at Pilgrim.  You may contact me at 615-330-8111 or d.hooge@comcast.net.
