This week's reflection questions: 

  1. How are you responding to the idea of the principle of indirection?
  2. What is your past experience with spiritual practices or disciplines?
  3. What small spiritual practice might you begin to offer to God as a way of participating in your transformation? 

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