Support for the Daily Examen
Oct. 19, 8:15 p.m. MDT | Online
It is so easy to say “Love Changes Everything” but do we really reflect on the deep truth of that and how it can draw us closer to our Loving God? God is Love and God loves us! This loving God desires our love in return. In the Examen this evening, we will take time to reflect on God’s great love for each of us, individually, and how this love manifested itself in our lives today. We will also reflect on how we responded in love.
