Spiritual PT

I wrote a wonderful Pew right before bed. Too bad I didn’t put it down on paper ( I wrote it in my head). I’ve been trying to resurrect it all morning to no avail. Hopefully it will come back. So you are stuck with a random thought I had.

After my fall, I spent a week in the hospital and then close to two weeks in the physical therapy hospital. (I have to be careful with my terminology. Where I stayed is technically called a rehab hospital, but now-a-days rehab doesn’t necessarily mean the Betty Ford Clinic or other such centers. Rehab hospitals and out-patient rehab means a whole lot more including the facility I was at and go to to regain physical strength and to learn to walk again.)

Which brings me to my thought about spiritual PT. For many, our spiritual health could use a workout. Even those who attend church regularly, participate in classes, go to retreats or engage in contemplative prayer exercises can use some assistance from time to time. In my grandmother’s day, a good old fashion tent revival might do the trick. My four years of EFM classes certainly made me come to grips with my faith.

In your daily conversations with God, perhaps you might ask if you might need a prescription for a few sessions with a  a spiritual therapist. Someone who does an assessment, takes you through a few exercises, and gives you a plan for your own personal program.

Just a thought while I try to recall the Pew I wrote last night.
