You may have a group that meets regularly for spiritual friendship. The guides in this section are designed to help with listening to God in the life of Jesus in conversation with one another. It is best to create a peaceful quiet where the group listens to the reading of the story at least twice. As the silence ends wait for first responses and not analysis. We are not looking for right answers but opening ourselves to the Spirit’s guidance. It is intentionally designed as though we are hearing the story for the first time so our eyes are open and our ears are attentive. The story then shapes the rest of the conversation for the group as life sharing develops and care for one another grows.
