This recording is Week 4 of a 6-part Lenten exploration via examen, the faith practice of looking inward, trusting that God wants the eyes of the heart to be illumined. Sheri Brown facilitates the series ~ through prayer, meditation, examen, reflection, scripture, poetry, fasting and almsgiving, participants learn to be a contemplative in action, connecting their spiritual lives with their active day-to-day lives.
Examen is the practice of prayerful reflection on how and where God is speaking to us from the events of the day. Through individual reflection and group discussion, participants will grow in the faith practice of examen (pronounced “examine”) as we journey together through Lent. Joined with weekly self-control and loving-kindness exercises, examen is the work we need to do before we can do the work we are called to do.
