Pendle Hill pamphlet #443As the ongoing tumult in the world about us continues to stir uncertainty and confusion, our need to remain in intimate touch with our Inner Guide to discern our way is ever more apparent. This series of online morning workshops is based on Jerry Knutson’s best-selling Pendle Hill Pamphlet #443, Individual Spiritual Discernment: Receiving, Testing, and Implementing Leadings from a Higher Power, which is required advance reading for participants. Participants are asked to bring a question, issue, or situation on which they wish to seek clarity from Spirit. In this experiential workshop, we will worship together and then practice methods of discernment, discuss how we test and implement our leadings, and engage in worship sharing in small groups on spiritual disciplines.
