  1. Truthfully, I haven’t been able to discern the meaning/process of discernment from this video. I need something more concrete than ‘listening for an inner voice’ and such statements. I guess I’m just not Quaker enough although I’ve been a Quaker for about 50 years.

  2. Everyone seems to express their own concept of discernment. Is there no agreed description of discernment to help clarify the notion?
