Sample CLC Outline
A CLC meeting may follow this general format:
• Pray for God's grace to open our hearts to hear God's Word and be receptive to it.
• Pray that the Holy Spirit will guide the meeting.
SCRIPTURE (or other media for reflection)
• A scripture passage is read slowly, carefully, prayerfully using any style of Ignatian Prayer.
• The same passage is read again as before.
• Allow yourself to delve deeper and reflect on the gifts of your prayer. Have a conversation with God in your heart.
• If you are distracted, talk to God about that. What does the passage say to that distraction?
• Share with your group how God spoke to you through this passage. What is God saying to your heart right now?
• If time allows, there may be a second round of sharing.
