LABC Update – November 14, 2023
November 13, 2023
This coming Sunday I will be quoting from “Grateful: The Subversive Practice of Giving Thanks” by Diana Butler Bass. One of the practices of giving thanks she lifts up is a “prayerful evening review of the day, a practice called examen (Latin, “examination”). It involves five simple steps and centers on gratefulness:
- Become aware of God’s presence.
- Review the day with gratitude.
- Pay attention to your emotions.
- Choose one feature of the day and pray from it.
- Look toward tomorrow.
If you try this practice, please let me know your experience.
In gratitude for each of you,
