Whether a simple desire to follow God’s way, a deep longing, or a satisfaction when we find a fulfilling path, discernment beckons believers. The eighth study in the Companions in Christ series, this ten week study focuses on the ancient spiritual discipline of discernment for the individual, congregations or larger bodies of the church. It follows the familiar Companions in Christ format of a weekly reading, daily exercises and a weekly two hour small group meeting.
In this helpful and encouraging book, Elizabeth Liebert introduces the practice of discernment and offers practical steps and exercises that will help readers as they seek God's call in the midst of their decisions. Readers can incorporate these exercises into their process of faithful decision making.
More of a journey in discernment than a how-to guide, this study for groups gently leads to the prayerful path of a richer, wiser life both for individuals and the larger church. Included with the participants guide is a leader’s guide with clear suggestions for the structure of meetings, leadership suggestions and specific centering and guided prayers.
