Matt Linn, SJ
Vine Street Christian Church
Fr. Matt Linn will lead a workshop on Discernment for Spiritual Directors or Spiritual Directors-in-training from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (This is followed by a weekend retreat for everyone – for more information, click here).
Discernment is a primary focus of spiritual direction. Join us for this opportunity to learn from Fr. Linn. It will be helpful for both you and your directees. Following is a description of the workshop (and subsequent retreat):
Life is full of decisions that can lead either to losing life or new life. How do you know whether you are listening to God or to your own fears and limitations? This retreat will explore the steps for discerning: becoming open to new dreams, hearing the real God in our consolation and desolation, healing our fears and limitations, risking new actions, and evaluating our lived experience. Although anyone will profit who wishes to dream new dreams and become free to live them out, the retreat will especially benefit those who are facing decisions. There will be exercises to apply Ignatian discernment so that it becomes a practical tool for future discernment.
Cost is $59 for the day (lunch included) or $139 for both events (a $20 discount).
