Reflection on personal beliefs and life goals

As children and teenagers, we experience life and its many changes of heart. Based on this life experience, our personal beliefs and goals get refined.

This becomes much more important as we become teenagers and then adults. Our beliefs and goals become more complex and more abstract, and it makes sense to set aside time to for reflection on these beliefs and goals.

The congregation’s role in this is to encourage and cultivate reflection focused particularly on changes of heart. It is good to ask questions such as: What changes of heart have I undergone recently?  Who and what do I now trust most deeply? Where do my loyalties lie? Where do I want my life to go?
