Jess HansenIntern, Journey Center of Chicago
Journey, radical hospitality, contemplation, inclusivity, inner-work, and experiencing God’s transformative presence. All these things capture my attention and all of these things are vital to becoming people who are the love of God in the world. As a trained spiritual director and current Master of Divinity student I see more and more the need for places like the Journey Center of Chicago. These are spaces that embody God’s desire to heal and communion with humanity and say: “Come as you are.” I am thrilled to have the opportunity to learn, grow, and be challenged to see God in all who will come, knowing I’m on the journey with them as will change because of how God meets us.
LGBTQI Group Spiritual Direction
Group spiritual direction is a communal experience in which participants can experience and become aware of the presence of God in lived experience of our everyday lives. Group spiritual direction provides a space for intentional listening and helps to facilitate integration of the spiritual and the many identities we hold as individuals. This particular group is for those individuals holding a queer identity.
This group is facilitated by Jess Hansen, Queer Spiritual Director, Journey Center of Chicago intern, and MDiv student
