Which Way To Go?

June 19, 2017 06:59


Summer is a great time to learn something new, or get deeper into an area you want to learn more about.  A group of friends and I are into your second week of The Ignatian Workout by Tim Muldoon.  I've read the book before, and knew that this group of friends, who I took through the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius last year, were looking for a fresh approach.

Right from the beginning, Muldoon has some wise things to say.  Here's one quote:

What makes the Spiritual Exercises a helpful guide for us post-moderns is its insistence that we can come to know God by coming to know ourselves better.  Ignatius was a bit of a maverick in his early life... the spiritual practices he worked through were not simply repeating old formulas but, rather, a fresh attempt to make sense of God's will. (p XXV)

What great thoughts to leisurely discern this summer:   How can I come to know God more?  How can I come to know myself better?  How can I make better sense of God's will in my life.  I used this image of a footpath to get you thinking about a little journey you might be called to make with my group of friends.  With honesty, ask yourself where you are really going?  Spiritual books like The Ignatian Workout just might help you either stay on track or get back on the right path.  Come, join us in our discernment.
