The first service that one owes to others in the fellowship consists in listening to them. Just as love to God begins with listening to His Word, so the beginning of love for the brethren is learning to listen to them. It is God’s love for us that He not only gives us His Word but also lends us His ear. So it is His work that we do for our brother and sister when we learn to listen to them.
— Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together: The Classic Exploration of Christian Community


Through monthly meal celebration, books study, group spiritual direction and a weekend retreat, “Soul Brothers” offers a 14-month group spiritual direction cohort for men.  The topic for each month is supplied from the book, Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership, by Ruth Haley Barton. This book is a deep exploration into the inner dynamics of spiritual leadership and has produced much fruit each time it is studied.
