The Inner Journey

Last night at our LivingRoom gathering we explored our inner journey together (ways in which we connect with God in our personal relationships with Him, which is part of the LivingRoom DNA). We decided a couple of weeks ago to go through the three journeys one week at a time.

So this week each of us brought a sample / symbol of that and shared it. I brought along my journals, a prayer, devotional books as the samples of my inner journey. Other members had notebooks, poetry, candle, books, words, phrases, photo album, nature sample, fruit tingles (tingle from the breath of the Holy Spirit), football, music etc. It was very interesting and everyone was very open about their inner journey. I enjoyed it as I got to know other members of the community's personal rituals of worship and connection with God. We also had a good time of prayer at the end.

We've also decided that each week we will do a bit of "inner journey stuff" five minutes before dinner. This could entail an activity that everyone can participate in such as writing, drawing, a walk down the street, discussion of a topic, dance, and meditation. Or it could simply be something that we talk about with images, words, and songs etc. I am really looking forward to that.
