Acting on the Word
Take home the paper flame that was handed out today. Maybe write a word or phrase on it that speaks to you of an encounter with God. Put it somewhere where you will see it each day: the fridge door, a bathroom mirror, etc. Use it to remind you that God is present and ask God to help you recognize your encounters with God this day.
