J. Brent Bill in Sacred Compass: The Way of Spiritual Discernment uses Quakerism as a foundation to find, follow, and ultimately live a more God-directed life.
He acknowledges that much of life can feel unclear and unstable. And he affirms there are practices that can be used like a compass to help us in our uncertain moments to walk with and towards Divine wisdom.
You may be familiar with one or more of the four steps he outlines in his book.
(1) Lectio: Reading a scriptural passage slowly so that you fully take in what is being presented.
(2) Meditato: Reflecting on the words and getting in touch with what you think and feel about the passage.
(3) Oratio: Praying and speaking with God about the passage and how you relate to it.
(4) Contemplatio: Being open to God and following God’s direction.
