Discernment: A Model for Making Life Decisions and Touching the Holy


Discernment is a decision-making process that honors the place of God’s will in our lives. Decision-making is a vital part of our common human journey. Making good decisions can be difficult at times and some decisions require deep thought, prayer, and consideration, lest we find ourselves facing the consequences of a poor decision or no decision. Every choice we make, no matter how small, is an opportunity to align ourselves with God’s will. Our goal is to seek to align our own will with the will of God in order to learn what God is calling us to. Come join us for a day of seeking and searching; at the end, our hope is that you will have a model to use in your own life when it is time to discern God’s will in any given situation.
