The Final Phase of Discernment (Nov 11 – 9:00-3:00, bring your own lunch)
(primarily for the Session, but other interested people may attend)
The areas will be reviewed and distilled further by the leaders of our congregation on November 11. Once the leaders agree that this is what the Lord is saying to the congregation, they will discern HOW God is leading us to act upon what God has revealed. When the HOW is made clear, we will identify together the next steps we will take to live faithfully in response to God’s leading.
The prayer guide has been emailed to all on the newsletter list, and is also available in the solarium for all of us to pick up and use to prepare for the Oct. 28 meeting.
This is an unfamiliar process for all of us. I certainly have never participated in something that placed so much emphasis on prayerful listening! But I am deeply encouraged by our facilitators’ confidence that the Spirit of God will speak to us as we engage in this process, and hope that all of us will participate! I remind you again of the question we are each asked to reflect on and bring to the 10/28 meeting:
LORD, ACKNOWLEDGING OUR DESIRE TO BE A HEALTHY CONNECTED FAMILY, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY TO US ABOUT YOUR MISSION IN AND THROUGH LCPC?
If you cannot attend these meetings, please let me know what you are hearing from God as you pray about the answer to this question! firstname.lastname@example.org, or 206-419-9987.
Praying with you,
