Before we can pray about the whats and hows of the Joyful Feast, we need to pray about the why. For the first few days of our 30 days of prayer and discernment, we’ll pray about our why from several different angles.
More and more people claim to have no religious affiliation or describe themselves as “spiritual but not religious.” Consequently, it is more and more common for people to practice spirituality on their own and not participate in organized religion. This raises a critical question: Why church?
Ask God to help you formulate and articulate a response to the following question, in just two or three concise sentences. Avoid using “churchy” language or theological jargon.
- Is it important to you to explore sacred matters and practice spirituality with other people? Why or why not?
Meditate on this question and your response throughout the day. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below.
