The Examen Questions

Read Matthew 25:31-46

1> Where did I see Jesus today?
2> Where did I miss seeing Jesus today?

Read Psalm 32

1> For what moment am I most grateful for today?
2> For what moment am I least grateful for today?

This is the Examen. Our life group has been doing it all summer. 6 weeks now to be exact. Each Monday evening, we come together and share the “top four” from our previous weeks reflections. I cannot tell you how formative this is. And perhaps the simplest thing we have ever done. It would be well worth your time and energy to form your own Examen group.

For resources on the Examen read Foster’s book “Prayer” or find the great little booklet, “Sleeping with Bread”
