The 21 Day GOSPEL Experiment
Re-orienting Life Around the Table
On Sunday, in Columbia Heights, JR Woodward shared his 21 Day Gospel Experiment. You can find the GOSPEL acronym below, as well as the prayer attributed to St. Francis of Assisi; and you can listen to the message here.
What it will take: 2 meals a week, 5 minutes in the morning and 5 min at night.
Get with at least one person and commit to participating in the 21 day gospel experiment, and meet once a week over a meal to share how things are going.
Orient yourselves toward God, how he has blessed you, remembering he is the primary agent of mission.
Select one of the four gospels and read a chapter a day, immersing yourself in the story, paying attention to Jesus' life and message as well as the significance of the table in his ministry.
Pray at the beginning of each day to center yourself on God and others. Offer yourself as an instrument to God, pray for 3 people who don't know God, and bless at least one person a day
Eat with someone who doesn't self identify as a Christian once a week, with another Christian, sharing life stories (3-4 life changing events) or the highs and lows of the week.
Listen to the Spirit throughout the day, and through the Stop, Look and Listen Ignatius practice at the end of the day.
