Vision Statement for the National Forum for Spiritual Direction UK
This statement came from a discerning process undertaken by the initiating group. This included a consultation with over 170 spiritual directors from all over the country who after prayerful reflection contributed their feedback. This was compiled into 72 page document. The group reflected and prayed with this, seeking to listen to all that was shared and draw together a vision statement. This vision statement comprises three sections:
- Vision – the aim and purpose of the Forum
- Values / Way – the values and ways in which it seeks to be
- Mission – the actions that are needed in the first instance in order to begin to work to the aim and purpose.
Prayer for the Forum
Creator God, giver of all good things;
provide for us as we support and resource each other.
Jesus, incarnate, embodied;
enable us as we model and promote good practice.
Holy Spirit, breathing life into the world;
inspire us as we advocate and encourage creative ministry.
In all things, God, animate our vision with your desire.
