Payne Theological Seminary - Day 2

This is Day 2 of my Spiritual Formation class at Payne Theological Seminary.

We meet at 9 AM.

I'll give some brief instructions, and then send the 27 seminary students out to pray for one hour, using Psalm 23 as their meditative focus. When God speaks to them, they will write it down.

After this hour we'll gather in the small groups we formed yesterday. Each one will share what God said to them. One person will take notes.

After 30-40 minutes, everyone will return to class. The persons who took notes will share with the entire class. During this time I take notes. Then I do some teaching, coaching, and sharing my onw God-discernment of what God is doing. During this time I give the Spirit free reign to direct me.

Then I will begin teaching my Theology of Spiritual Formation.

I am so thankful to be here in Wilberforce (Ohio), at this historic and living place, with such an excellent class of new friends!
