April 15 & 22 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM EST

A course teaching about how to write a spiritual autobiography as a practice of discernment about God’s work in one’s life. Many of us are helped in discerning “what is God asking of me?” by taking a prayerful look at the testimony of our life-to-date. It is often clearer to see God’s work in hindsight. Then, having seen the ways God has already been present in our history, we are better able to guess what God is asking of us in the present.
