Upcoming Sermons - Discernment of the Spirit

Discerning God’s leading as we seek to make faithful decisions can be a struggle.  How do we bring together the abundance of knowledge, our instincts, personal desires, and church teaching to determine Christ’s leading?  In this four-part series we will examine John Wesley’s approach to discernment – scripture, tradition, reason and experience – which has become known as the Wesleyan Quadrilateral.  (This series will not run on consecutive Sundays.)
