A new take on Discernment

 

I tend to think of discernment as demanding

And it is

It is also invitational 

Drawing us into a space

of wonder and creative imagination

A space that is not a void

but filled with potential

A space that is large enough

to allow us to dwell

Contemplatively

for as long as it takes 

A space hollowed out

to contain our fear

as well as our anticipation 

and to host our wildness

along with our reason

A space conducive to dreaming and plotting

and envisioning and conceiving

A space uncluttered by barriers

that encourages innovation

Discernment demands...

that we gather courage

to respond 

to the invitation that it offers.
