This week's reflection questions: 

  1. How have you seen yourself grow spiritually over time?
  2. How has that growth reflected different aspects of God's nature in you?
  3. What are some of the ways you would articulate your true self as expressions of God's essential nature? 

As always . . . you're invited to join us in the private Facebook group for conversation around these ideas and the sharing of your experience!
