WEFOUNDSpiritual Treasure


Spiritual direction can benefit anyone on his or her spiritual journey, whether a lay person or a clergy member. United Methodist bishop William Hutchinson believes that pastors can benefit not only from being trained in spiritual direction as they work with congregants, but also from being directees themselves. He believes these clergy tend to be “less reactionary, less judgmental, more centered, more reflective. They search for deeper answers.”

Hay believes that spiritual directors should be grounded in the practice of hospitality, welcoming all as Christ. They should also make sure they’re taking care of their own spiritual lives to be effective. “The calling to be a spiritual director is a humbling path to follow because it requires intentionality about our own prayer life, so we can offer deep listening, unconditional love and acceptance,” she says.

The decline of the class meeting is attributed to both the rise of the Sunday school movement and the rise of affluence among Methodists, who were then less comfortable sharing the details of their spiritual lives. Watson proposes a return to these transformative, life-changing groups that should be characterized by consistent attendance, active listening, interpersonal skills, confidentiality, humility and a willingness to be vulnerable. Regardless of the form spiritual direction takes, the goal, as the 18th-century preacher Peter Cartwright stated, is to have souls “made alive to God.”

Treasure (from Greek θησαυρός - thēsauros , meaning "treasure store", [2] romanized as thesaurus ) is a concentration of riches - often those that originate from ancient history - that is considered lost and/or forgotten until rediscovered. Some jurisdictions legally define what constitutes treasure, such as in the British Treasure Act 1996 .

The phrase "blood and treasure" or "lives and treasure" has been used to refer to the human and monetary costs associated with massive endeavours such as war that expend both.

Searching for hidden treasure is a common theme in legend; treasure hunters do exist, and can seek lost wealth for a living.

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves;

"But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal;

"The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
