In your time alone with God in scripture reflection, solitude, prayer and journaling, begin with a breath prayer like "Holy Spirit, come," or listen to a song from the playlist. This fall we are focusing selections from 1 Timothy. Consider using one or more of the practices below during your time of reflection.
- JOURNALING: Write out the passage in your journal. Make notes in the margins to amplify or clarify words. Be creative with doodling, drawing, highlighting words or phrases, collaging with cut-out words or pictures. Take your journal with you wherever you go this fall. At the end of this series you will have a journal full of your own reflections, thoughts and prayers!
- READING: Take time and slowly read aloud the passage. What words or phrases stand out to you? What questions do you have? What feelings arise in you? Which physical response seems appropriate: hands raised or open? head bowed or lifted? standing or seated?
- MEMORIZING: Commit to memory one or more verses.
- PRAYING: How does this passage inspire praise, confession, lament, gratitude, or guidance for yourself, others or the world?

These songs are the songs of our church, the music we sing as we worship God together each week. They contain messages of praise and adoration, humility and gratitude, hope and trust, sacrifice and surrender. May these songs invite us into God’s presence alone in our personal time, and together as we worship the Lord each Sunday.
