In the first half of the year there had been a deliberate emphasis on the reflective life, particularly on the use of the prayer tool of examen or review of the day. It helps us discern God’s action and voice in our daily life. This tool can be used to reflect on months or even years. You could look at God’s action and voice in “our story” and at our role or assignment in God’s plan or “God’s story”
While still nurturing the practice of the examen, in the second half of the year, we want to develop the second trait, which is the ability to speak the truth in love. This includes being able to share your deeper thoughts and feelings, and to deal with expectations and to handle conflicts in a healthy way. Please support and pray along with us as we continue on this journey of discipleship the rest, of the year.
