As those who pastor others through seasons of transition, we help God’s people see and live into an unknown future - fraught with anxiety and filled with abundance. And often we discover in these times that God’s ways are not our ways - that God’s path is different from that which we would imagine for ourselves. In order to sense and live into the unfolding mystery of God’s call, we are best served by nurturing hearts for discernment - in ourselves and in those we are called to serve. This may be some of the most important work we do as intentional interim ministers.
In this day apart, we will look at some of the obstacles to discernment, consider the possibilities for integrating discernment and contemplative practice in our own lives and ministry, and most of all, take the opportunity to practice and reflect together. You will come away from this workshop with practical steps to help deepen your own practice of discernment as well as some ideas to integrate these practices with the people you serve.
