It’s quite an akward week to start our “spiritual friendship” group. For me, it was in and out of hospitals with Mom last week and May Chin this week. Both are doing alright now. For our big bro who initiated the process down with Denggi and his son admitted. But, thankfully it was a better week for the third person especially when it comes to setting boundaries in work.
Our first meeting face to face with all three of us was yesterday morning.We’ll be meeting monthly and I really looked forward to something like this. I was hoping to start one myself (which I think I’m doing something a little different with Emergent Malaysia). But I suppose, it’s better for me personally to just enjoy accountability, support and spiritual formation with these two brothers.
Our Big Bro was kind to give us this particular book to guide our reflections and thinking. It’s nice to receive gifts not just in the form of books (which I don’t mind) but more in the form of acceptance, openness and mutual discernment.
Looking forward to personally work through these questions in the coming months:
# What is my calling?
# How do I live it out in the midst of difficult relationships or moral challenges?
# Will my vocation change as I enter a new stage of life?
# As I cope with competing needs and demands, how can I craft a balanced, ordered way of living?
# Where do I find the courage to follow God’s call?
