To complete this assignment, read John Ortberg’s The Me I Want to Be
Your journal should contain four entries. Please include a date for each entry. (It’s fine to include additional entries if you want.)
Use the table of contents to divide the book into three roughly-even portions. Each portion will provide the basis for one journal entry.
For each portion, write a 300-400 word journal entry reflecting on what you have read.
The final entry should be a summary reflection. The summary should reflect on your experience with the book as a whole, but also try to explain (in your own words) why the subject of “spiritual formation” might be important for someone at your present stage in life.
How should I “journal” about my reading?
How you journal about your reading is up to you. If you are uncertain, here are a few questions that can guide your approach:
What struck you as significant for your understanding of yourself, your vocational goals, and your role in the world?
How did it change your thinking?
What lessons/principles/suggestions do you want to hang on to – and why?
What is God saying to you through your reading?
Is there something you need to change in your life? What?
Is there a commitment you sense God is calling you to make?
