Kenneth Leech famously claimed that “There is no such thing as private prayer. The word private comes from privatio, which means robbery. To the Christian, nothing is private, least of all prayer.” How does that challenge our, and our directees’, notions of prayer?
We may be called to accompany someone who sees their experience of church and their “spirituality” as two separate worlds; someone whose obligation to recite the daily Office leaves them “no time to pray”; someone who regards prayer - or even spiritual direction - online as “virtual”. How does our understanding of the Body of Christ inform the way we work with them?
