Engaging the Community
Keeping a Journal
As you engage your community, you will be on a journey of discovery. You
may meet new people and get to know old friends in new ways. Within your
community, you may learn new things; meet interesting new people; and encounter
new sights, smells, and even tastes. Like many travelers, you may find it useful
to keep a journal to record your experiences, impressions and insights. The
journal could be an individual one, or it could be a joint project, growing out
of regular times of group discussion.
What is important is that, as you move forward on this journey of
engaging the community, you reflect on your experiences, holding them in the
light of faith. This question may help you reflect on your experiences: What is God’s will for the people we meet? for
our community? for our ministry in this time and at this place?
