Abstract
This project studies personal journal writing as a spiritual discipline. The biblical reference for the project came from Jeremiah 36. The participants in the program were lay persons from St Luke's Episcopal Church, Mobile, Alabama. They committed themselves to read selected passages from Holy Scripture, to reflect upon the same through contemplation and to write journal entries related to the experience. Two questionnaires provided empirical data on the project, which lasted 30 days. At the conclusion the participants made personal assessments of their own spiritual growth.
