This pamphlet, in telling the story of these two friends traveling in the ministry in 2008, reflects extensively on the experience of spiritual accompaniment, or the kind of eldering support that Cathy delivered to Elaine. It is both fascinating and a valuable exploration of how and why to provide for such spiritual accompaniment and support. The clear implication is that spiritual support for each other is not only for traveling ministry, but is needed, indeed essential, for our ministry of all kinds in our meetings, families, and work in the world. The pamphlet offers practical help on learning how to attend to the Inner Teacher, in order to discern how to provide or ask for eldering support in all kinds of situations. It is a valuable addition to the modern Quaker literature reviewing the vital practice of Quaker eldering.
