Sarah Cledwyn, MA, and Terri Pahucki, MA, share about emerging language in spiritual direction for atheists, agnostics, and the nones.

 Do you connect to the God or Higher Being of your youth? How has your faith and spiritual journey changed since you were a child?

  1. What are some terms and phrases that you have used when trying to talk about prayer and the presence that some people name God?
  2. Think about a time when you personally experienced awe and wonder in your life. How can you reclaim that experience as a spiritual practice?
