In Scripture, the Rule of St. Benedict, and in the practice of spiritual direction, we are taught to watch for the fruit of the Spirit. What does that fruit look like in real life? What difference does the practice of seeking the Spirit make for us and for the world? Sr. Josue Behnen OSB, spiritual director and supervisor, shares her perspective on these questions after a lifetime of practice.
Discerning the Spirit
What do we look for?
Sitting at the Feet of Jesus
Contemplative Way of Being
Paying Attention to the Divine
Why is supervision important?
Slow, Silent, Uncertain
Homesick for the Kingdom of God
Becoming More Patient and Kind
Training for Lay Pastoral Caregivers
Bridge Builders for a Thriving Mission trains lay pastoral caregivers in the art of listening. The training consists of two overnight retreats and four Zoom meetings. If the kind of listening that Sr. Josue describes seems compelling to you, we would welcome an exploratory conversation.
