Event Location: Online
Event Type: Tyndale Spiritual Formation Centre
Tyndale Association of Spiritual Directors presents a virtual workshop “Growing in the Holy Spirit” with Rev. Tom Schwanda, PhD.
Spiritual formation and spiritual direction are dependent upon the reality of the Holy Spirit. The good news is that the Spirit of the living God is not silent but graciously desires to communicate with us so that we can be in fellowship with God. Our time together will include a presentation grounded in Scripture and illustrated through examples from the life of the Church, reflective exercises, and discussion. Our goal is to encourage a deepening awareness of the Holy Spirit’s presence and guidance and cultivating the art of discernment to grow into greater communion with God and our neighbor.
This is a free event.
