Spiritual Direction Retreat at Elim House






Walking with Henri Nouwen is the name of the pastors' retreat on Spiritual Direction that Elim House Retreat Center. We are in our second day of the 4-day retreat with 50 pastors, spouses and church leaders as we focus on three Christian disciplines that help us 'live the questions'of the spiritual life: 1) the Prayer of the Heart in silence and solitude; 2) lectio divina or the meditative and devotional reading of scripture as we seek a personal word for us today; and 3) the spiritual direction of the church or community of faith. Much is of this is new yet builds on familiar practices of Korean spirituality.

Our text for the retreat is Spiritual Direction by Henri Nouwen, one of the many books by Henri published in Korean.
