SEE THE BIG PICTURE OF YOUR LIFE. One of the great delights in reading a biography is to see the story of another person unfold; to experience that person's struggles to find meaning, and to become a creative, contributing human being. Think, then, of the value of watching your own life take shape in biographical form; of noting God's regular involvement, and of perceiving your purpose, strengths, and possibilities in light of your unfolding story. Practiced throughout history by such key figures as Augustine, Pascal, and C.S. Lewis, and regularly employed as a spiritual discipline by the Pilgrims, the writing of a spiritual autobiography can wield a pivotal influence in your life. Spiritual Autobiography brings this all-but-lost discipline to life for modern-day pilgrims. As you learn to discover, write, and tell your story-ups and downs included-you'll see God at work in your life. And when practiced in a group setting, the exercise of sharing your stories with one another takes on even greater value as you draw strength from one another's experiences and provide insight into where God seems to be leading each person in the group.
