Saturday, February 17, to assist the Brothers in their Integration Day, a time to reflect on the five weeks of their training and sharing. The day began with morning prayer as Brothers Leo Mboo and Dominic Kargbo led a morning prayer prepared by Brother Chris Meehl, in which they asked the Brothers to “enter into the mystery”: to contemplate, to listen to the silence: that we not be afraid of reality, that we not be locked into ourselves.
The ten Christian Brothers of the AST had signed up for various appointments with the three visitors, three appointments each for Sister Miriam and Sister Maimbolwa, and four for Father Francis. Throughout the morning the Brothers visited with these spiritual companions and reflected, too, on their own: 1) what had been your learning over these initial weeks? 2) How much effort have you put into your recent spiritual development? 3) What have you struggled with in your time here in Limulunga? 4) What benefits have you gained from the AST program? 5) How do you feel about joining the cluster here in the Western Province? and 6) How do you feel about this new approach to ministry as outlined in Journeying Together?
