DATES 26 June & 3 July (7-9pm)
TYPE OF COURSE Introductory - level 1
LEADER Mandy Aspland
In the level 1 Pastoral Conversations course , we explore how to move from a social conversation with a friend into a pastoral conversation with someone in need. In this Spiritual Conversations course, we continue to develop the the idea of moving from one kind of conversation to another, by reflecting on ways to recognise where God is at work in a situation, and open up a space for the person to share how their faith relates to their life circumstances. In other words, how to move from a pastoral conversation into a spiritual conversation.
Course content is delivered over two sessions:
- Session 1
- How do we listen to God today?
- Three-way ‘holy’ listening (to God, others, & ourselves)
- Session 2
- Challenging topics
- Spiritual needs
There will be an opportunity to reflect on your own experience of receiving spiritually supportive conversation, a ‘fishbowl’ example to listen in to someone being supportive (following a bereavement), and some time spent looking at how Jesus responded to different spiritual needs.
