January – Perspective
“Objects in mirror are closer than they appear.” That’s what the side-view mirror in the car tells us every time we check our blind spots.
This exercise is to check your blind spots—that is, the ones you know about. How has a change in perspective (or in knowledge, experience, age, authority, etc) changed what you had thought of as “true,” “factual,” “real,” or “normal”? What blind spots have you encountered or discovered over the course of your life—and how are you trying to see them, or helping others see them?
Share your reflections with the group.
Spiritual Exercises and Covenant Groups: We print the spiritual exercises every week for individual use and also for discussion in Covenant Groups. If you would like to learn more about Covenant Groups, see follen.org or speak to Membership Director Andy Wells-Bean.
