Worship: "Discernment"

One of the great spiritual practices is that of discernment.  When we want to do more than to leap to an answer, when there are many variables in play--and when we're not sure--we can enter into discernment.  But how do we do that in a way that's not merely stalling and procrastinating?  How do we do that as part of a group, like a congregation?  Well, ORUUC has a decision before it in the next few months: whether or not to become a Sanctuary congregation, part of the Sanctuary movement supporting people in this country without documents.  There will be different perspectives, different factors, and a lot of listening asked of all of us. So, we'll use that actual question that will be put before us as an opportunity, on this Sunday, to reflect on the process of collective discernment.
