A New Year's Examen

I don't generally make New Year's Resolutions. It's just not a practice that I've found 'works' for me in any meaningful way. Partly, I wonder whether we need a more modest goal for new habit formation, like 7 days instead of 365 (or, if you're more ambitious, the 40 days of Lent are only a few months away!). But also, I wonder about the rush to make resolutions for the next year before we've really reflected on the year we've just made it through.

For the purposes of reflection, I've found helpful an ancient prayer practice called the Examen, which is often associated with St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuit Order (for March Madness aficionados, that's the folks who founded Georgetown and Gonzaga, among others). In the prayer of examen, we review our day—or our week, or month, or year—imagining that Jesus is alongside us as we walk back through all that has happened.

To review your 2021 with God, take these steps: find a quiet place and light a candle or otherwise set the space and time aside as sacred. Remind yourself that you are in the holy presence of God, and begin with a spirit of gratitude for all of the many gifts you have received. Now, walk through your year, month by month, noticing times that were particularly life-giving, and other times that may have felt life-draining. When did you feel love? When did you show love? When did you fail to love? After you have walked slowly through the past year with God, you can return to the present moment. And—there is a New Year's resolution here after all!—you can resolve to look for God in all things as a new year begins.

However you begin a new calendar year, remember: God's love is
new every morning, always making us anew.

Grace and Peace,

David & Cindy
