Self-Examination (Examen)

This week’s practice is Examen, or self-examination, and involves contemplative reflection inward, asking ourselves how God has been a part of our life or how our decisions have been directed by God?

Phil Brookman, youth minister at the Memorial Road church of Christ, spoke to teens at the Winterfest Conference some years back and summarized well this spiritual exercise.

This week as a part of our emphasis on Worship as a spiritual practice, we are going to focus on worshiping in SONG.  So, instead of talking about it, we are going to encourage everybody to come together Sunday evening for a time of worship in SONG!  We’ll be spending the evening singing praises to the Lord and Jared will share with us some devotional thoughts to help us center our praise around the throne of God.

In lieu of a ‘video introduction’ this week, let us share with you a selection of current and popular worship songs that you can take with you this week and use them to praise the Lord yourself!  We may be singing some of these Sunday!  Have a blessed Easter weekend!
