How do you address the role of desire in your spiritual life? The Center for Spiritual Direction at North Park Theological Seminary welcomes Ruth Haley Barton as the 2009 speaker in its annual lecture series. Barton, president of the Transforming Center (www.thetransformingcenter.org), will address "The Role of Desire in the Spiritual Life." (Suggested donation $5). The Center for Spiritual Direction offers a 15-credit certificate program designed to train individuals in the ministry of spiritual direction. Spiritual direction is the ministry of listening, discernment, and prayer in a confidential setting of encouragement and compassion. An individual offering spiritual direction helps to discern the movement of God in another's life.
