Discernment Micro Retreat
Join us for a micro-retreat where we share practices and offer ways to re-commit to focusing on what matters most. We’ll be referencing The Discernment Travelogue (from UCC Resources and the book “Saying No to Say Yes” (written by David C. Olson and Nancy G. Devor), where the authors write, “Part of our job as clergy is to model an understanding of who saves us—and for what. It is our job to preach, teach, and live a gospel that doesn’t depend on human over-functioning but on God’s grace. Ultimately, such a life enables us all to become masters of renunciation: saying “a hundred nos for the sake of an overwhelming Yes.” While this is true for pastors, it is also true for congregations and other ministry settings. In a time where we face the tension between “going back” to how it used to be and forging ahead to a new way of engaging in ministry, it will be vitally important to discern what nos will allow us to say YES to the future God imagines. Take some time to read the book and Travelogue and join us in a retreat-style conversation.
