Making Decisions

prayer candleMaking decisions in life can be a challenge. The Christian community can be a source of helping you hear God’s voice in your ordinary or difficult decisions. One spiritual discipline that helps with discernment is from the Quaker tradition. It’s called a “Clearness Committee”.

The Quaker Clearness Committee is a small group that is called together to assist a person who is seeking the Holy Spirit’s direction. In this process of discernment, the participants listen for God who is speaking through each person present.  The Clearness Committee members don’t offer advice or any “fixes” but only ask the focus person honest, loving questions that seek to help the focus person gain clarity about their situation.  Read more about Clearness Committees and how they work here.
