How often have you been in your group when someone deeply shares, but you're just not sure where to go with it? Maybe you sense there's more "underneath"?
Do you just stop and pray?
Do you just move on?
Proverbs 20:5 (ESV) says, "The purpose in a man’s heart is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out." But how do we draw out understanding when people are in the midst of struggles and issues?
Throughout the year we offer a workshop on pursuing the heart. This workshop will model skills and questions that, with the Spirit's help, can reveal the underlying issue or concern. This is the "drawing out" process that helps lead to understanding. Jesus modeled this well: loving others is moving toward the pain, not away.
