Spirit-Led Decision Making – An Introduction to Ignatian Decision Making
October 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFreewill Offering
Spirit-Led Decision Making with Virginia A. Blass, D.Min on Zoom
Life’s important decisions set new directions for us. For example: “What college shall I attend?” “Will I choose to marry?” “Where will we decide to live and raise our family?” “Should I take that new job and move across the country?” “When and where will I retire?” “How will my choice impact the environment in which I live?”
During our evening program, we will learn and practice a proven method of decision-making in which we invite God to guide us in this vital process. This introductory program, from the teachings of St. Ignatius of Loyola and founder of the Society of Jesus, is based upon the conviction that God desires to actively help us with our decisions to bring about more freedom, creativity, and happiness. We can become more aware of God’s loving desires for us and co-participate with making decisions that bring about the greater good for ourselves, others, and our earth home.
Join us on Thursday, October 28th from 7:00- 8:30 pm via Zoom. All are welcome!
