Rev Adele Ahlberg Calhoun is a spiritual director, pastor, and author. She is currently the Co-Pastor of Spiritual Formation at Highrock Church in Arlington, MA. She has written several books – including two of my favorites: The Spiritual Disciplines Handbook: Practices that Transform Us and Spiritual Rhythms for the Enneagram: A Handbook for Harmony and Transformation   As the title of the second book reveals, she is an expert in using the Enneagram for spiritual formation. She has also taught courses at Wheaton College and Northern Baptist Theological Seminary.   Take a few minutes to meditate on Matthew 15:21-28 and then tune into this interview to hear where God led Adele.   Some highlights from our conversation: We discuss what Jesus meant when he said, “it is not right to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” We discuss how this passage shows the humanity of Jesus. We reflect on this woman’s bravery in seeking healing for her daughter. We talk about spiritual pilgrimages - what they are and how you could join one.   The exact verses read in this podcast are Matthew 15:21-28 in the NIV.   You can find Adele at   Here books are linked above. They are both excellent.
