Sept. 1 Gathering: Discernment


How many times have you heard someone say something to the effect of “God told me to…” or “I felt God saying…” or “God has a plan for (me/you/us/them)?”

Did you ever wonder what they meant by that? How they were hearing or perceiving God? And why it may seem so different than what or how you sense God communicating with you?

Discernment—how we know what we know—can be a daunting and confusing process. How can we learn to “listen” for God? How can we trust what we perceive? And how do we act faithfully on what we believe God is prompting us to do?

This week at New Wineskins, we’ll dig into the topic of discernment and talk about our different experiences of how it works, both for us as individuals and within the context of community.

Be sure to join us this Sunday, Sept. 1, in the 167 Side Room of the Marietta Brewing Company to share your ideas, questions, and stories about discernment!

Happy half-hour at 6:30pm, conversation starts at 7:00pm
