It is challenging to hear God’s call in today’s hyper-busy world – not just the big stuff, such as career and family, but the little stuff: discerning sacredness in the ordinary, peace in the commonplace, seeing Christ in those we like and dislike, and in general, acting in accordance with God’s will. How do we do it? How do we hear and heed – and then say “yes”? Drawing on the wisdom of scripture, St. Benedict, St, Francis, and Teilhard de Chardin, the program leads us through instruction, quiet reflection, and journaling to find new ways to discern God’s call to each of us.
