the ability to judge well.
(in Christian contexts) perception in the absence of judgment with a view to obtaining spiritual direction and understanding.
A noble pursuit, indeed.
To be “in discernment” is to be many things.
It is to be already but not yet.
It is to be charged to move forward with conviction while remaining in a posture of waiting.
It is, above all else, a willingness to hold tension.
Sometimes I do that well, and sometimes not so much.
Writing helps, and so I shall write about the tension here.
