New Year’s Examen
More Than A Resolution
For the second consecutive New Year, Sunridge invites you to take part in a New Year’s Examen. While general reflections or New Year’s resolutions are common at the mark of a new calendar year, an Examen is a guided exercise of prayerful remembrance that Christ followers throughout the centuries have used to discern God’s moment-by-moment presence, His direction for daily life, and His aim to form us into the image of Christ.
How To Use
Attached you will find a four-day Examen we’ve compiled using its four traditional movements – Gratitude, Illumination, Review, and Renewal. Each step is accompanied by a short Scripture, as well as prompts or questions to elicit reflection and prayer. Our hope is that through our individual and collective processes, this experience sets precedent for another year of us intentionally seeking to help one another find and follow Jesus.
