SPIRITUAL AUTOBIOGRAPHY AND PHOTO

Suggested length: 1,500 words

This is not a chronological outline of your faith journey, but rather a prayerful reflection on the ways in which God has been accompanying you through your life.  We suggest that you take time to pray over this and allow God to bring to your mind significant events, people, insights and turning points in your pilgrimage.  You may be surprised by patterns you notice, or seemingly insignificant occasions which now appear important.  Allow yourself time to reflect on these and include your insights.

Once you have completed and submitted this form, please send your spiritual autobiography and photo as attachments by email to info@wellspringcentre.org.au
