Christian Mysticism/Expert Profile


Ask A Question

Expertise

I can address general questions specifically about Christian mysticism, and more specific questions about writers and their writings, spiritual formation and direction, and how Christian mysticism "fits" within the Christian view. Further, I can draw connections and illustrate commonalities among Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and Zen spiritualities. I am not an expert on and will not answer questions about other forms of mysticism, or the occult. If your question has to do with Christian mysticism, I'll be happy to respond.

Experience in the area

I have an MS in Ministry, and an Masters of Counseling in Marriage and Family Therapy, have provided spiritual direction for more than ten years, am a member of our local spiritual directors group, have an extensive library of Christian writings on spirituality and mysticism, and have provided pastoral care for Christians and non-Christians, also for more than ten years.

Organizations

Our local Spiritual Directors group A local congregation

Education/Credentials

MS, Ministry MC, Marriage and Family Therapy Have read and studied extensively Christian mystics and spiritual formation. My library probably has a couple hundred books on just this topic.

OK, not a problem.    The two are equivalent when speaking of the devil or evil one.    Satan (or adversary/accuser), is an adversary against people, not against Lucifer.    Lucifer and Satan are the same
