Giving spiritual support to the journey of another person is a great privilege but also a great challenge. And sometimes the closer we are to a person (our husband, brother, son) the more difficult it is to help in ways that are truly helpful. We don’t want to judge, shame, push, or give explicit direction—this is the loved one’s journey, after all. We don’t want to attempt doing the work that the other person must do for himself. How do we love without imposing and support without enabling? Please post your wisdom here, and feel free to join the conversation with questions and comments.
