Abstract:

Spiritual mentoring is a particular kind of friendship in which, according to Keith R. Anderson,'two or more people walk together in heightened awareness of the presence of yet Another'—the Holy Spirit.'Spiritual mentoring is not a complicated process that requires technical training and complex protocol,'Anderson continues.'It is essential, authentic, and maybe even natural human speech that is focused, disciplined and nurtured by training for one of the hardest natural things we do: listening reflectively to another. It is sacred companionship as life is lived and story told. Available to almost all, it requires deliberate recruitment, preparation and practice.'These pages unfold a vision for mentoring that invites us to read our own lives as narrative and to learn how to enter the narrative of another life. The book covers the scope of the mentoring relationship through various seasons, offering helpful and inspiring metaphors for mentoring. All are invited to enter the mentoring story.
