At the end of the week, take some time for the Examen, focusing on your experiences related to love and service.

  1. Gratitude: Reflect on moments this week where you felt or witnessed genuine love.
  2. Review: With God, review your week. Where did you see opportunities to love others? Where might you have missed these opportunities?
  3. Think About It: Do you think you love others the way Christ loves? In what ways is it easy for you? In what ways is difficult?
  4. Prayer: What is on your mind this week? Where do you need God to show up? Pray about the details of your upcoming SERVE project. Be praying that you will show the love of Christ to those you will be serving.
  5. Hope for the Coming Week: Pray for continued opportunities to cultivate love for others and for the courage to take action in love.
