Part of the process, in the Episcopal Church, is the assembly of a "discernment committee," which meets regularly to support and talk to him, to figure out why (and if) this is really what he wants to do.
I am on that committee.
And as part of that process, we've agreed to spend part of our second meeting (on Wednesday) sharing our "spiritual autobiographies."
Which brings to mind a few questions:
- Would it be, like, really bad if I paid someone else to come up with my spiritual autobiography?
- Is it just me, or is it kind of cool that I have reason to write a spiritual autobiography — and share it with near-strangers — every eight years or so?
- Is it bad that I still have the last two spiritual autobiographies I had to do, and that one of them is in board-game form?
- Is it bad or a sign of growth that they are pretty much useless to me developing a current relevant spiritual autobiography?
- Would it be at all funny or instructive if I did it in haiku or six-word form?
- Would you please post your own six-word or haiku-form spiritual autobiography in the comments?
