Unpacking my bags…

Tonight I arrived at The Journey, a week-long experiential seminar where we facilitate training for journey groups…

Journey groups invite participants to unpack their bags and be curious about why we act the way we do…

Often the critical conversations surround the questions of what we believe about God, ourselves and others….

And how do those beliefs shape our behavior…

I have been involved with Journey Groups for almost 20 years….

unpackingAnd so tonight as I was unpacking my bags,

I was reflecting on how much easier it is to unpack my clothes than my heart…

My heart feels full….

Full of sorrow….

Full of questions…

 

Full of ache….

Full of wonder…

Full of gratitude…

Full of emotion…

Full…..

And so during leaders weekend, my small group will invite me to unpack the bags of my heart…

I will explore new places of my story this weekend with friends who love me…

I will explore what I am believing about God, myself and others in my grief and in my gratitude…

I will unpack my heart and likely keep what I want to hold near and decide some of what I am holding can be let go…

I am thankful for the invitation to unpack….

I invite you to spend some time in journaling or conversation this weekend to unpack a thing or two of your own….

Marvel at all your heart holds….

Journey well my friends….
