The Examen is a prayer of review that contains a short reflection back over the day, recalling events and taking note of your feelings. The purpose is to become more self aware and in tune with the ways in which God has been present to you through your everyday life. As we practice becoming aware of God’s presence with us in hindsight, the more we are able recognize his presence in the moment. Contact Pastor Lee for resources on how to lead the Examen in a group setting.
