I belong to a study group that meets Monday evenings at St. John's Cathedral in Central. Every year, every member of our group prepares and presents a Spiritual Autobiography or SA as we all call it. I have come to love going through the process of preparing for it because I learn something new about myself or my family every time I do it. I had thought before that I knew myself pretty well - I mean, who can you possibly know better than yourself, right? As it turns out, however, life gets busy, and without having to tell my story to others, I seldom go back over events in my mind to understand more deeply why things happened as they did, or why I did and said the things I did. I have come to understand the meaning and trajectory of my own life much more deeply through a regular process of autobiographical reflection. The following two links offer hints on autobiography writing and example of autobiography that you may find readable.
