40 Day Journey with Julian of Norwich: Day 3

Lenten Book Group 2022 | by The Friends of Julian of Norwich

Prayer material and guided prayer.

And in this He showed me something small, no bigger than a hazelnut, lying in the palm of my hand, and I perceived that it was as round as any ball. I looked at it and thought: What can this be? And I was given this general answer: it is everything which is made. I was amazed that it could last, for I thought that it was so little that it could suddenly fall away into nothing. And I was answered in my understanding: it lasts and always will, because God loves it; and thus everything has being through the love of God…In this little thing I saw three properties. The first is that God made it, the second is He loves it, and the third is that God preserves it.

Reading: Genesis 1:1, 31a

A suggestion was made during our introductory and orientation session that for some people, journaling might not be the best way to review their prayer. I commented that Praying in Colour might be a good alternative – it is what I intend to do. I have written about it before and if you would like to read more about it, you can find that information here.
