Sorry! I turned off my speaker when Vicar Pam was speaking!
Thank you, Pastor Shannyn for the awesome sermon! So inspiring and exactly what we need to hear "at such a time as this".
The Ignatius practice of Examen is this:1. Become aware of God’s presence.2. Review the day with gratitude.3. Pay attention to your emotions.4. Choose one feature of the day and pray from it.5. Look toward tomorrow.The Daily Examen says this:A person dwells in a state of desolation when they are moving away from God’s active presence in the world. We know we are moving in this way when we sense the growth of resentment, ingratitude, selfishness, doubt, fear, and so on. If my outlook becomes increasingly gloomy and self-obsessed, I am in a state of desolation. I am resisting God or, if not actively resisting, I am being led away from God by other influences.Consolation can hold many emotions and experiences. Consolation does not mean that I feel constantly happy or at peace. In fact, sometimes when I am doing precisely what God is leading me to do, I might feel negative pressure from others, or I might find the experience a challenge because I’m growing and learning.
Yet if I sense in my spirit that I’m going the right way, this spiritual reality consoles me whether the day is bumpy or smooth.
Asking for prayers for my dad, Ralph Petersen. He is failing quickly and the end of his time on earth seems to be nearing. We are having a family meeting in a few minutes with Dad to talk about safety issues and care needs. He is both confident in his faith and acknowledges his life journey, but at the same time, his stubborn Danish spirit is not willing to go softly into the night. He's pretty feisty. Just prayers for peace.
Peace be with your entire family, Karla.
God's Peace everyone!
Peace and comfort to your family, Karla
God's Peace to you all
