Julie Parker Amery completes spiritual direction program

Julie Parker Amery, our Director of Religious Education, completed the Rowe Certificate Program in Spiritual Guidance and was honored in a commissioning ceremony on May 3. Over the course of the two-year program, she’s been engaged in reading, reflection, discussion, and experiential work in various aspects of spiritual guidance: deep listening, spiritual practice, metaphor and imagery, theology, sacred activism, meditation, etc. The Soul Stories program that she designed and offered at the FRS during the winter-spring was her practicum for the program. She’ll be offering a spiritual direction group to FRS members in the fall for those interested in digging into their deepest selves and connecting with the sacred.
