“What should I do with my life?” “I want to do God’s will for my life, but I’m just not sure what it is.” “What does God want me to do?” Chances are that if you haven’t heard these words – or something like them – coming out of your own mouth, you’ve heard them come out of someone’s close to you. Though these sorts of questions are nearly universal in the christian world, the simultaneous lack of clarity and the longing for certainty that many people feel around them can be both vocationally paralyzing and spiritually frustrating. In this series of lectures Jim Paul, a long-time worker at the Greatham L’Abri tackles these problems head on offering in the first lecture a concise overview of how we have come to think about “decision making” the way we have (as well as the problems that come with this), a refreshing biblical explanation of how God makes his will known, and an exploration of making decisions in daily life. Jim is a clear and competent communicator and these lectures in particular are regularly on our short-list. They are highly recommended.
Lecture One – “Decision-Making Today”
Lecture Two – “Understanding the Will of God”
Lecture Three – “Decisions and Being Human“
