Advent: Step 4 Act

Blog Published: December 21, 2010

The fourth and final step for our spiritual tuneup is to act. No, you don’t have to join a stage group (although that may be what your reading, praying, and reflecting move you to do). Rather you are at a new place where you can choose to be in the world in a way that is more in sync with yourself and with God.

Advent: Step 3 Reflect

Blog Published: December 20, 2010

Wow! It’s the 4th week of Advent. As we move towards Christmas, we are invited to read, pray, reflect, and act (continuing the thread from earlier). These four steps can help us during Advent as well as anytime we need to tuneup our spiritual life.

Advent: Step 2 Pray

Blog Published: December 7, 2010

Prayer. It’s a basic necessity of life. Whatever form it comes in, whatever words or images we use, we need to not just pray, but make our entire lives a prayer. Continuing the thread from earlier, to pray is part of the 4-step formula (read, pray, reflect, and act) for engaging in Advent and for deepening one’s spiritual life in general.
