Spiritual Exercise: Each week we’re trying to give one option for “working out your faith” in a practical way. Think about the C.S. Lewis quote, “We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade the presence of God. The world is crowded with him… The real labor is to remember, to attend. In fact, to come away. Still more, to remain awake” (C.S. Lewis, Letters to Malcolm).

The Spiritual Exercise this week is to attend to the presence of God. Each day, begin with the assumption that the world is crowded with God. At the end of the day (or the next morning), journal briefly about where you saw God’s fingerprints in the previous day. What blessings did you experience? Where did you see something good, noble, or beautiful? How might God have been behind it?
