Episode 48: Discovering Spiritual Direction with Chris Eaker
Jul 13th, 2020 by The Messy Spirituality Podcast
My guest in episode 48 is my friend, Chris Eaker.
Chris is a husband, father, former engineer, academic librarian, musician, and spiritual director who lives in Knoxville, TN. He graduated from Georgia Tech in 2000 with a degree in civil engineering and in 2013 from the University of Tennessee with a degree in informational sciences. He received his Certificate in Spiritual Direction from Richmont Graduate University in May 2020 and now offers a contemplative and reflective style of spiritual direction in Knoxville and virtually. His own spiritual formation formation has been guided by contemplative prayer practices, journaling, and silent retreats. Together, those form the foundation of spiritual direction through Stepping Stones Life Ministries.
In this conversation, we discuss Chris' spiritual evolution, recently being shown the left foot of Christian of fellowship by his local church, and how contemplative practices and spiritual direction have helped lay a foundation of freedom in his life.
