Prayer and Planning: The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada’s Communal Discernment Model
Prayer and Planning
In the fall of 2007, the staff of The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada embarked on a journey of integrating communal prayer practices with strategic planning efforts. The path that we took over the next six months was shaped, on the one hand, by the practice of communal prayer that we formed and, on the other, by a modification of the “Appreciative Inquiry” model for strategic planning. What we were forging was, in fact, a process for “communal discernment.” Our communal discernment model has brought together various streams of listening for God’s voice through reflections on God’s written Word and conversations with one another, and in relation to the broader context in which we are engaged.
