• Intrigues you? Challenges you?
• What do you want to know more about?
• What confuses you?
• What stories of your life does it bring to your conscious memory?
• What might the Holy Spirit through the text be inviting you to do?
4. You can write as little or as much as you desire.
5. We invite you (not required) to share your reflection by submitting it to Pastor Keith who may share them with the Trinity community in various ways.
