Writing Prompts

1. What would it ‘do your heart good’ to confess to yourself or others? Why would this be healing? Be specific.

  • What do you need to get off your chest and why?
  • What could confession teach you about healing and shame as well as about deepening forgiveness?
  • Do you sensor yourself more than is necessary, and if so why?

2. When have you served as someone else’s ‘confessor’ and what did this teach you about the power of presence?

  • In what ways is this being a confessor different than ordinary listening?
  • How does this kind of sacred listening transform the listener?
  • Have you ever turned away someone from confessing to you, and if so, why?
