Spiritual Preparation

Find a place where you can be quiet with your thoughts. Make yourself comfortable; light a candle to mark the time as different from your other activities. Close your eyes and breathe deeply and perhaps repeat a word or phrase to separate you from the activities of the day. After you open your eyes, consider:

  • In what ways do you support people you care about?
  • When have you ever had to give up something personally, in order to support another person? Was any sacrifice you made worth it?
  • Was it easier to support someone when you fully trusted their motives? Have you ever had to trust and support someone when you were skeptical of their motives or doubtful about the success of their mission?
