We come to a point in our life when we pause and reflect on our life’s journey. There is a crossroad we come to when we search for the deeper spiritual meaning of what it is to be human. This podcast is about the spiritual journey and the sacred narrative of our personal stories.
Sharon, along with her guest, Fr. Phil Cover, will talk about the practice of spiritual direction and how it can help us see the transcendent working in and through us. It’s about our willingness to be vulnerable and open so that our spiritual way of being will continue to grow.
Phil Cover is a retired Catholic priest who is active in retreat leadership and in the ministry of spiritual direction. He is an experienced educator, retired government executive, pilgrim guide to Mt. Sinai, former part of the adjunct faculty with the Shalem Institute’s Spiritual Direction Program and previously served as the assistant executive director of the Department of Religious Education at the National Catholic Educational Association. His spiritual roots are in the contemplative Christian tradition, from which he tends to God’s work of spiritual formation and transformation. He is co-author of Journey with Purpose and The Inner Work of Lent.
Phil holds a BA from Borromeo College of Ohio, Bachelor’s degree in Sacred Theology from Catholic University and MA degrees in education from Catholic University.
