Hour Two: Read chapter 3 in The Way of Discernment. Practice the “Awareness Examen” (p. 3) daily (as possible). Practice “Seeking Your Heart’s Desire” (p. 24) even if you have done it before. Ponder what (if any) big discernment questions are arising in your life or your ministry right now. Use chapter 3 and the exercises on page 41 and 46 to help you frame your question and to think about how you will gather data.
