How do churches, and disciples, make decisions? How do we hear the voice of God and discern his will? Discernment is a mode of discipleship, but discernment is best done as part of a community of faith.
In this conversation, Jeremy and Steven talk about why discernment is important, and share thoughts around how discernment was done through community, prayer, shared experience, worship, and scripture in Acts.
This is part one of a two part conversation. In part two, we will talk about how churches and disciples today can practice good, healthy spiritual discernment in community.
Is Christianity a meeting, a way to get from point A (earth) to point B (heaven) and not point C (hell), or a way of life? Drawing from Brian McLaren's article, Emerging Values (Leadership Journal, Summer 2003, Vol. 24 #3), Jeremy and Steven discuss Christianity as a way of life -- in Christ, we are becoming something new.
