At times in our lives, we sense that something new may be on the horizon.  Perhaps fresh interests are emerging, or a different focus that God seems to be impressing on our heart. These are God-given turning points...crossroads.  How do we cultivate a readiness and aptitude to make the most of these defining moments?  What tools are available in our faith tradition to help us make wise decisions?  We can all benefit from following a practical road map to discern how to navigate crossroads and receive wise direction toward a new course.

 

Dr. Joyce Emery and Holly Novak will lead this five-week course using Living into the AnswersL A Workbook for Personal Spiritual Discernment by Valerie K. Isenhower and Judith A. Todd.  Books will be available for purchase for $12 at the introductory session.

 

Donna Daigle, a certified coach, will be joining us on October 11 to unpack a free inventory called the Core Values Index (CVI). Previous course members have found this helpful and we hope you will make it a priority to take the index.
