"At the same time, we practice our discernment not alone but in community. The question is not simply, "Where does God lead me as an individual person who tries to do his will?" More basic and more significant is the question, "Where does God lead us as a people?" This question requires that we pay careful attention to God's guidance in our life together, and that together we search for a creative response to the way we have heard God's voice in our midst."
-Henri Nouwen, Discernment: Reading the Signs of Daily Life
