DISCERNMENT

From time to time we gather folks for a class on Discernment. The class is a unique opportunity to explore Spiritual Discernment… that is, figuring out what God is trying to tell us, or where God is leading, or making a decision that seems that we should consider God’s input. The class will be a commitment and a blessing all at the same time.
 
We meet for a total of 12 weeks. We will meet weekly for
3 weeks exploring what discernment means and how we do it. Then we will take a 6 week break from class, to practice what we’ve been learning, journaling and also read a book. Finally, we’ll get back together for 3 weeks to debrief our time apart and explore what might be next.
If you are interested in Discernment, contact Kim La Rue at kimlarue@powellumc.org
