Anytime. It is never too late, or too soon, to get a spiritual mentor.
Other "when" considerations include a respect for another's time commitments, knowing that we have other means of help available to us, and not laying responsibility on him or her for our own spiritual growth.
How often and when to call a spiritual mentor are decisions left to the individuals involved.
At any time and for any number of reasons, a spiritual mentorship may end. We have no hard feelings when someone outgrows our ways and turns to another spiritual mentor.
Where Will I Find a Spiritual Mentor?
We look for a spiritual mentor among the persons who attend our local church. We also may look beyond the confines of official membership in that church. Some of us even look beyond any specified locale. We look among our acquaintances over the years.
