Spiritual Companioning

A Guide to Protestant Theology and Practice.
Among the smiling faces in church on Sunday mornings are those who long for
deeper, more genuine relationships within their local congregations--active,
intentional relationships that nurture the soul, foster spiritual growth, and
move past surface pleasantries into the real joys and heartaches of life. In a
society that is increasingly fragmented, they are looking for a place to simply
belong--to come home to other people and to God.
Pastors and lay leaders may use the increasingly popular language of spiritual
formation and spiritual practices, yet they struggle to germinate a culture of
honest conversation about the life of faith. Drawing on decades of experience
in spiritual direction, congregational ministry, and seminary teaching, this
book offers a clear and rich introduction to the theology and practice of
spiritual companioning in the Protestant tradition. Angela Reed, Richard Osmer,
and Marcus Smucker explore the topic in a biblically based and historically
informed manner and give practical help for cultivating spiritual relationships
in congregations and beyond, using stories throughout to illustrate key ideas.
Spiritual Companioning will be of interest to seminary professors and students
as well as pastors and lay leaders. Study materials are included.
