How are you processing the uncertainty of this season?
The Daily Examen is a spiritual practice that helps us prayerfully reflect on our daily lives. We become more self-aware and more aware of what God is doing in and around us.
Gratitude and confession, silence and celebration – all of these spiritual disciplines are woven into the Examen. A regular practice of the Daily Examen will equip us to be more present to ourselves and to others.
This week Alan talks to us about the discipline of confession. Revealing our true heart towards God and encountering his presence.
