In a typical African settong before the arrival of the Christian missionaries, the spiritual director is deeply revered and one who leads the individual and community.such person is highly prepared from a tender age. He inspires respect and embodies high moral standard. The moral wellbeing of the community was the number one priority of the society.
When the missionaries came , the clergy took over the role of the spiritual director.”morality” was replaced by ‘”belief in Christ ” as the center theme .
The traditional spiritualist speaks less and acts more.he is aware that action is more important than words. He speaks only when necessary and everyone is quiet and eager to listen.from the depth of his silence, he speaks slowly and wisely.
The modern spiritualist is not greatly prepared. He speaks more and acts less.he is a great orator whose words conflict with his action.
