Meeting for Discernment - Winter 2022
Meetings for Discernment
Meetings for Discernment are periods of extended, waiting worship designed to discern leadings and strengthen connections in our yearly meeting. The Winter 2022 Meeting for Discernment will be held in three Zoom sessions on Saturday, February 25. There will be a meeting on the evening of Friday, February 24 for first-time attenders and for anyone interested in eldership. On Saturday, there will be two sessions for extended worship on our query. The final session will be for reflection on what we've heard and what we’ve experienced. Below are more details for each session.
Queries for Saturday morning and early afternoon sessions:
How am I being changed by the movement of Spirit? Are there ways I am resisting Spirit’s promptings? How does my resistance point me toward that place where I embrace change, where I become changed? How am I being called to attend to the movement of Spirit within?
Corporately, in our monthly meetings and yearly meeting, where are our places of resistance to Spirit’s call? How are we learning to become more imaginative and adaptive? How will we co-create a welcoming and resilient community where all will thrive?
Friday, February 25, 7 - 8:30pm: A gathering of first-time attenders and friends interested in holding the body throughout the meetings for discernment sessions. Friends will share their experiences of eldership and prepare for Saturday's sessions.
Saturday, February 26, 9 - 11am: The first session for extended worship on the query above.
Saturday, February 26, 12:30 - 2:30pm: The second session for extended worship on the query above.
Saturday, February 26, 4 - 6pm: A reflection session to consider what we've heard and what we've experienced.
