Soulwork For Pastors
Pastors need someone to talk to. You’re often under a lot of pressure to satisfy your congregant’s many needs. Who satisfies your needs? Whom do you have to go to with your struggles, spiritual or otherwise? Whom can you talk to on a regular basis who knows you, your situation, and your needs? And who is outside your congregation so you have confidentiality?
I can provide that for you. My name is Peter Nagle. I am an experienced Spiritual Director in Northern New Mexico. I specialize in providing SD to pastors. I have an M.A.R. from Yale Divinity School and am certified through Stillpoint as a SD. I also provide SD to Richard Rohr’s Living School students and to retreatants at Ghost Ranch.
If you are not local, we can connect by Zoom or Skype monthly, or as needed. And we have a retreat house you can come to periodically for rest, relaxation, prayer, and spiritual direction in person. We live in a gorgeous area near Abiquiu with beautiful views, many wonderful places to see, and great hiking. All of which we would help plan out specially for you and your needs. It would be a time for you to rest, recuperate, and re-charge.
SD offers the busy Pastor a place to be cared for, and gain a renewed sense of God’s presence, love, and wisdom. Pastors are often the most isolated individuals within the church and don’t have safe places where they can receive spiritual nourishment and companionship. SD offers a place where you do not have to be a Pastor. To provide care for others we need to first care for ourselves. SD offers that care.
If this resonates with you, wouldn’t you like to have someone to talk with who understands your needs and is just for you? If so please feel free to contact me. We can explore your needs and see if we have a match. There is no obligation and it is completely confidential.
It is my passion to help Pastors thrive in their very pressured existence. I hope to hear from you.
