I led a group of men in our church through a study on Spiritual Friendship this summer. We used as a companion guide to the Scriptures David Benner’s book entitled Sacred Companions. He basically contends that every follower of Jesus needs two types of companions in their spiritual journey: Spiritual friends and a spiritual director. The book unpacks what he means by these terms.
Here are the discussion guides that I created for our group. They are in pdf format and are roughly two pages each.
