This weeks Reunion.
we touch base and reconnect with each other.
Seeing, Hearing, Valuing.
Take a bit of time now to bring each person in your Reunion group to mind in turn and hold them prayerfully.
As you do this what comes to mind, what is it about each person that brings a smile to your face, that you value right now?
It might be a character trait you value, maybe a scripture that is a good fit for them or a hope for them in this next year.
Now record this for each person and bring it with you.
Feedback on prayer activity and connecting with people during advent.
Now it is time to bring yourself to mind, how did you find praying during Advent?
No judgement, just the reality of how it went. Did you commit or have a hope of connecting with some people you’d like to see come to know Jesus. I did what I committed to do locally but I’d also friends back in Ireland that I wanted to have more meaningful conversations with. I was shocked that the person I expected to be least open talked at length and depth with me over a few days. I guess that is how it goes sometimes but you only know the lay of the land by having a go.
I know for some of you life circumstance mean't the advent challenge just didn't happen. As I said earlier, no judgement. We want the real you at Reunion in this coming week and we want to hold you in the context of your real life. When we meet most will be sharing about the advent challenge, conversations they had (or didn't have), prayers answered... or not yet. If this is not your story, please say so and share what the reality was, it might be illness, family crisis, work. Everyone in Reunion and everyones story in Reunion matters, no shame, no avoiding, lets show up and fully show up.
The last thing to think about in advance is to remember why you decided to do Reunion and is that still your reason, has it changed?
What are you still hoping for, what do you still need from Reunion?
Are you aware of anything you need to do or commit to for Reunion to be profitable for you?
Record and bring it with you.
