Pursuing God’s Will: The Habit and Practise of Discernment

23–25 March 2021 (Tue–Thu)

This is an online-only event.

“My sheep listen to my voice, says Jesus.  I know them and they follow me. John 10:27
Is there a trustworthy process that enables Christians to actively seek God’s will and direction and voice relative to decisions we are making? Both as individuals, in community, and even in the context of our marriages?
In a most general sense, discernment is the capacity to recognise and respond to the presence and activity of God – both in the ordinary moments and in the larger decisions of our lives…Discernment literally means to separate, to discriminate, to determine, to decide or to distinguish between two things. Good (that which is of God and draws us closer to God) and evil (that which is not God and draws us away from God.  ~ Ruth Haley Barton
In this retreat we will explore the following:
The habit of discernment, the practice of discernment and discerning in community and as leadership teams.

This retreat will be conducted via Zoom and will include 2, 1-hour sessions each day – 10.30am to 11.30am and 2.30pm to 3.30pm.
Retreat notes, Zoom links and a helpful guide to using Zoom will be sent prior to the beginning of the retreat.
