Discernment and Decision Making in Daily Life
Thursday, October 17, 2019 – Thursday, October 24, 2019
Repeats every Thursday
7:00PM – 9:00PM
We all face forks in the road of life, times when we find ourselves in a quandary, wondering which decision is best. We try to understand what God might be saying to us in such circumstances. As we navigate these choices, we might experience a keen sense of God’s presence—or, at other times, God’s hiddenness. Join three of the Center’s seasoned spiritual directors for a two-session workshop that explores a Christian approach to discernment and decision making in daily life. We will discuss a variety of concepts from the work of Ignatius of Loyola, the mystic and theologian who gave us the Consciousness Examen and articulated the helpful notions of spiritual consolation and desolation. We will also examine some of the psychological factors impacting our decision making and discuss case studies that illustrate the art of discernment in everyday life.
