Two more events confirmed for this fall in the past 24 hours. 14 events in October alone. We are going to be busy.

But the real heads up in this post is about the FIVE opportunities to be trained to facilitate the discernment of others' charisms in September and October. Coming to a parish near you - literally!

Kansas City, KS on September 18 - 19

Peachtree City, George (Atlanta) on September 27- 28

Houston, Texas, October 16 - 17

Linthicum, Maryland (Baltimore) October 18 - 20 in the evenings

Ann Arbor, Michigan, October 27 - 29 in the evenings (this just was confirmed so it isn't up on our website yet)

Learning to facilitate the discernment of others is one of the most valuable pastoral skill sets for pastors, pastoral staff and leaders and can have an enormous impact on life of individual Christians as well as in our parishes, our dioceses, and with regards to the Church's mission to and in the world. Have I also mentioned that listening to people's stories of being used by God is a incredible experience? How it opens our eyes to what God is doing in our midst and how it nourishes our own faith?

There are some important pre-requisites:

Step One: Begin Your Own Discernment

1) Experience the Called & Gifted introductory workshop (live or on CD).

(We have live workshops coming up this fall in Silverton, OR; Sugarland, TX; Peachtree City, GA (Atlanta area); Issaquah, WA (Seattle) Collierville, TN (Memphis area) Indianapolis, IN; Linthicum, MD (Baltimore area) Houston, TX; Seattle, WA; Petaluma, CA Corpus Christi, TX)

2) Take the Catholic Spiritual Gifts Inventory (which is distributed at a live workshop or can be purchased through our website)

3) Have a one hour, one-on-one personal interview with a trained interviewer.

a. If no trained interviewers are available in your area, you can arrange for a phone interview through the Institute office.

b. There is a nominal charge of $25 for a phone interview as we pay our interviewers an honorarium.

4) Pick a charism to explore and do some personal discernment. This experience will not only help you clarify
your own charisms but give you insight into the discernment process which will help you enormously when
listening to other people’s stories as an interviewer.

Step Two: Becoming an Interviewer and Small Gifts Group Facilitator

1) Prepares you to conduct a one hour, one-on-one session with someone who has been through a live
workshop or listened to the CDs and has taken the Inventory. During this interview:

a. We answer the participant’s personal questions,
b. Help participants recognize patterns in their life that may indicate the presence of a charism,
c. Help them pick one charism to discern and determine how they might do so.

2) Attend Gifts Interviewer Training:

a. Prerequisites for going through interviewer training:
i. Basic listening skills (we don’t have time to teach them during the training)
ii. Practicing Christian for a couple years, the basic spiritual and personal maturity to listen to
very different personal and spiritual experiences without interposing one’s own.

b. Interviewer training is short but intense. A typical weekend schedule would be Friday night from 7 – 9:30
and Saturday 9am – 8 pm. Some trainings are done in a series of three evenings in a row.

c. Cost: $100/person (includes the cost of extensive reference materials)

When the Canadian government established a series of entomological laboratories during the 1910s, crop protection was a domain where provincial governments were already busy providing technical support to local agricultural associations. The establishment of regional laboratories resulted from the adoption of the Destructive Insect and Pest Act in 1910, legislation that portrayed insect outbreaks as an interprovincial or an international problem under federal jurisdiction. The natural order conceptualized by federal scientists and legalized by the Canadian Parliament initiated a process of centralization. As the knowledge produced by the federal scientists reinforced representation of natural phenomena that legitimated their involvement across the national territory, the federal government concurrently achieved a political order by which it exerted its power over both nature and nation.
