The Pilgrim's Way

Wisdom Walking: Pilgrimage as a Way of Life

Let's go for a walk. A very long walk. A journey down the pilgrim's path. Traipsing through the forest of life. Climbing over the mountains of adversity. Enduring the climate of challenge. Over the course of countless mile and numerous days, we will mine the golden wisdom hidden within our pilgrimage experience. 

When Leadership and Spiritual Direction Meet: Stories and Reflections for Congregational Life

Modern church leaders need to cultivate innovative and creative leadership skills as they navigate today's post-Christian world and as their congregations look to them for insight and guidance. Stafford takes a fresh look at this vital need, drawing on his experience and interweaving them with ancient spiritual practices found within the discipline of spiritual direction.
