The Importance of Self-Examination

The Importance of Self-Examination

We are already two weeks into the seven weeks of the season of Lent that leads up to the celebration of Easter, according to the Christian calendar. Clearly, I speak from the perspective of a Christian minister as I write this. However, from the perspective of a clinical social worker, I would suggest that the concept of being penitent and reflective exists in other world religions.

One year ago, I was sitting on the plane, returning home from one of the most mind-bending and faith-stretching experiences that I have ever had. I am coming back from my first Christian Medical and Dental Association/Global Health Outreach (www.cmda.org) trip to Managua, Nicaragua. The team was at the House of Hope (www.houseofhopenicaragua.org).
