“I found that the fear I had about questioning what I thought was truth was more perceived fear rather than real fear. I discovered that God was not afraid of my questions. In fact, He was calling me into those questions. ”
What things are best suited to help others grow spiritually, and what equipment is at the disposal of the spiritual facilitator?” Spiritual facilitators help others through their own presence, the conditions they create and maintain, and the effective use of questions to point, nudge, direct, and teach those who want to learn. One of the best contexts for discovery is experiential learning. This is a type of learning that requires action, reflection, and an undetermined result. In a word, spiritual formation requires adventure.
This book is a set of thoughts to challenge and inspire
those who are in a position to help, teach, lead, or mentor others who are at their own crossroads, wondering if the lonely less-traveled road is for them. The author invites us to read slowly and listen closely as we join him in thinking about our part in God’s work on earth.
“Drawing on his substantial experience as a facilitator of change, Greg applies time-tested principles of personal development to his topic of spiritual growth. He masterfully helps us travel well on our spiritual path, without telling us exactly where to go—the holy grail of experiential learning, and evidence of years spent honing his skills.”
—Mark Regouby, MTS, Harvard Divinity School, Cofounder of TellTheirStory.org.
“Greg brings together his expertise in experiential education, his deep understanding of spiritual formation and his own authentic journey to create an important guide for all of us who seek to follow Jesus and serve as guides to others on the journey.”
—Rev. David Jensen, M.Div, Founder Initiatives International, Inc.
“I have greatly benefitted from Greg’s challenge to ask good questions and release control of the disciple-building experiences that I’m seeking to facilitate. In this approach, the Holy Spirit is the ultimate guide and teacher and our role is to listen and respond to His leading. This seems to reflect Jesus’ approach to discipleship and is quite an adventure.”
--Rob Ribbe, Director of HoneyRock, Northwoods Camp and Campus of Wheaton College
