The Yadkin Examen

The Yadkin Examen

By Yadkinville United Methodist Church
Welcome to the Yadkin Examen. The Examen is a prayer podcast. Every Monday we take a moment to reflect on our week past, give thanks to God, and seek strength for the day and week to come.

We will use prompts for self-reflection from various sources like the 22 questions John Wesley and the Holy Club at Oxford would ask themselves daily. In addition to that each week our prayer will begin with an excerpt from Sunday’s sermon and we reflect on some questions from the sermon and worship.

Join us for prayer every week!

When did I last speak to someone else about my faith? Do I get to bed on time and get up on time? Do I disobey God in anything? Is Christ real to me? Reflection Questions from the sermon What opportunities do you have in your life that can open doors to sharing Christ’s love that may be unconventional? Who has opened doors for you to get where you are? What doors can you open for others? Any questions, comments, feedback or concerns you can reach me at pastor@yadkinvilleumc.org

In other words, am I a hypocrite? Can I be trusted? Am I a slave to dress, friends, work, or habits? Do I insist upon doing something about which my conscience is uneasy?

Baptism of the Lord
Welcome to the Yadkin Examen. The Examen is a weekly prayer podcast, where every Monday we take a moment to reflect on our week past, give thanks to God, and seek strength for the day and week to come. We use reflection questions from different sources to help us seriously pray and review our own spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical lives.  Each episode begins with an excerpt from Sunday's sermon and ends with the scripture text. On January 9th our preacher was the Rev. Aryn Williams-Reubel and she preached from Mark 1:4-11.  Reflection Questions selected from John Wesley and the Holy Club Am I jealous, impure, critical, irritable, touchy, or distrustful? Do I thank God that I am not as other people, especially as the Pharisees who despised the publican? Is there anyone whom I fear, dislike, disown, criticize, hold a resentment toward or disregard? If so, what am I doing about it? Is Christ real to me? Reflection Questions drawn from the Sermon  Who prepared the way for you and helped you step into the stream? Who has God placed in your path in order for you to prepare the way for them? How  are you continuing to experience a Baptism of the Holy Spirit which  empowers you and redirects your life more toward Christ?
