Listen for God's Leading: A Workbook for Corporate Spiritual Discernment by Valerie K. Isenhower & Judith A. Todd
Listen for God's Leading is for churches, judicatories and organizations who are seeking God's yearning for their future. Listen for God's Leading will provide the practical tools your group needs to put God in the center of your decision making processes.
The book is best used when everyone in the group has a copy of the book and can read the appropriate sections and begin praying about the exercises between sessions. Jerry Haas, Director of the Academy for Spiritual Formation, says, "I particularly appreciate the authors' affirmation of scripture as the touchstone for all true discernment. Also they describe the process of discernment thoroughly, explaining that there can be no shortcut in seeking God's will. " Many groups find it helpful for members to also be working on personal discernment using Living into the Answers by Val and Judith as a guide. Groups may also find it helpful to read, Transforming Church Boards into Communities of Spiritual Leaders by Charles M. Olsen.
