Earth Examen (Youth & Adult versions)

The Earth Examen practice does not require any special place or expertise.  This is just a method for truly taking in where you are and being grateful for it!

Use either of these templates to personally contemplate the space around you or use it next time you gather for youth group, Bible study, church council retreat or need a centering activity while at camp.

Thanks to Lutheran World Federation for the Season of Creation guide, where an Earth Examen guide can be found on pages 37 & 38 (click to open). 

Thanks also to Pr. Martha Bardwell (MN) who developed a concise version to use with broader audiences (click to open and print for easy reference.)
