Practicing the presence

Make a list of people in your circle of acquaintances who could use some encouragement. During this week do three separate actions of encouragement to either one or three people: write a note, say something genuinely appreciative or complimentary, take time to actively listen to this person without offering critique or counterpoint.


  • Prayers of thanksgiving and petition
  • Journaling or Silent reflection
  • The “Lord’s Prayer”
