For Friends, one of the most meaningful and helpful practices is that of group discernment.
Our Monthly discernment session is titled, "Living from the Center." We meet the first Sunday of each month (check the church calendar for the exact date and time).
As Christians indwelt with Christ's Spirit, we have the Mind of Christ. We come together in a time of prayerful listening for the Spirit of Christ to speak to His people. By laying aside our personal agendas and passions, together we can discern God's direction and leading. Corporately seeking clearness for specific concerns and issues of the heart are also part of group discernment.
Therefore, the purpose of group discernment is at least two-fold.
1. Listening and hearing together for the common support and ministry of Christ's body (the church).
2. A unified direction and mutual ministry better served as we hear together and obey together, as Christ's body.
We invite all interested join us in this discernment journey.
