Meeting at the Intersections: Preparing Mind and Heart
As we took up these conversations, we saw it as an opportunity for us to more fully share the mind and heart of Christ for one another, the church, and the world. Join us in a spiritual practice of preparation for our time of learning, sharing, discernment, and action. May God use it to orient our hearts to the truth and grace of the gospel and open us to the work of the Holy Spirit among us.
We invited you to spend time in Philippians 2:1–15 last fall, to follow the schedule below, or read through the passage in its entirety each day. We offered the Lectio practice as a guide; we also encouraged you to journal your experience and pray for the church and this process.
Monday: verses 1–2
STOP — Prepare and Invite
