The lecture was given in English on Sunday January 21, 2024 via live video conference from Ottawa, Canada.
For many of us, sometimes our burden is one of choice. We’re free to choose, but why ought we choose one way and not another?
Being free to do “this” or “that” can be mechanically depressive and linked to a crisis of meaning.
But being free with God and for God leads to a different life, and it is different because God’s will for us is discerned in our inner life.
This lecture will explore some of the basic contours of what it means to discern God’s will for our lives.
