Season 6: Episode 8 | Space for Discernment
If you have gotten this far and are still wondering if a retreat is a necessary practice, we knock it out of the park with discussing Jesus’ pattern of retreat. Jesus utilizes retreat for discernment even though he knew everything. Ruth shares three categories of discernment that can be practiced on retreat. Settle the crazy down! Don’t miss the great discussion Ruth and Steve have about discernment as a relationship instead of as a transaction.
