Sunday Follow Up: Tools for Discernment

On Sunday at Christ Community Church, Pastor Turk talked about discernment in our prayer lives. You can hear that message, “Discern” on our website. To help you along, we’re featuring two new resources, and reposting a few old ones.

First, Nicole Cottrell shares some basic insights on “How to Hear from God.” Then be sure to check out Richard Dahlstrom’s unique take on discerning the catalyst moments– moments that didn’t seem like they would matter and then end up changing everything– in “If you give a moose a muffin…”

We face choices everyday– some more monumental than others. Here are three resources to help you along the way of discernment:

Amy Vogel’s “So You Want to Know God’s Will” is especially helpful if you’re having a hard time hearing God’s voice.

“Simple Questions to Help you Discern” comes from Spiritual Director Teresa Blythe. The questions may be simple, but the answers may be life-transforming.

And “Godly Decision Making” is an excerpt from the book Pursuing God’s Will Together: A Discernment Practice for Leadership Groups by Ruth Haley Barton. It is thorough and helpful as you start with some of the more major decisions.

This post is for adults and provides resources for discernment.
