Church Leadership and the Difference Between "Discernment" and "Decision-Making"

I'm spending today with the leadership team of First Baptist Church, Urbana, Ohio - on spiritual discernment, and the distinction between discernment and decision-making (they are not the same). 

To understand the distinction see Ruth Haley Barton's excellent Pursuing God's Will Together: A Discernment Practice for Leadership Groups.
