Ron and Toni have ministered together as Salvation Army Officers throughout Canada for 37 years. They both attended The Salvation Army College for Officers, International College for Officers and trained as Spiritual Directors with Soulstream. Together, through the untimely loss of parents, a child, threatening illnesses and the challenges of ministry, moving and marriage they learned to lean into God. It was easy to build a fortress for survival that protected them, but they realized that their hearts were broken, wounded and shut off from others. As they sought for answers in prayer, Holy Spirit led them into new pathways of experiencing God and healing.
Through the generous, tender and loving touch of so many spiritual directors, guides, coaches and mentors, they now live in a place of convergence. A place where all of life’s experiences are brought together through a convergence of love. In this place they experience a loving, joyful delight in their own and each other’s humanity, their energies are renewed, passions revived and peace manifests as they live their lives in the present moment. We often ask why we couldn’t have learnt this when we were younger, and the answer is because experience distilled by Holy Spirit is the pathway to living in the unforced rhythms of God’s grace. Their prayer and gift are that perhaps you may learn through the opportunities that they offer and perhaps your journey will not be as long or arduous as theirs.
