Find a place where you can be quiet with your thoughts. Close your eyes and breathe deeply for several minutes, perhaps repeating a word or phrase to separate yourself from the activities of the day. When you feel settled and relaxed, consider:
- How would you complete the phrase "I am from... .?"
- What aspects of your heritage do you consider to be gifts? What aspects of your heritage do you consider to be burdens?
- In what geographic location are you most rooted?
- Where are you rooted theologically?
