We are reflecting on the Jesus Creed as Jesus’ way of spiritual formation

Hear O Israel, the Lord our God.
The Lord is One.
Love the Lord your God
with all your heart,
with all your soul,
with all your mind
and with all your strength.
The second is this:
Love your neighbor as yourself.


Father – Abba – loves us – all of us – this is at the very core of spiritual formation.


These are words of Jesus on spiritual formation.
Over the month of September: read – memorize – recite – reflect on these words daily.
Bask – sit in his presence and his love. Learn that love. Trust that love.
Take a few (or many) minutes to prayerfully read the Jesus Creed.
Allow this reminder of what we are called to be and do, shape our thinking and our actions.


Listen deeply to the meaning of the word Abba and discover the depths of who God is, what God is like, and how he invites into relationship.


Imagine your relationship with God as Abba.
Imagine how you might live as you grasp deeply that God is Abba for you – he loves you and is for you.
