are a multitude of ways in which one may reflect on human experience
in light of the Christian tradition. Some of the possible

of the method. Those named "Theological Reflection"
are drawn from Patricia O'Connell Killen and John DeBeer, The Art
of Theological Reflection (New York: Crossroad, 1994).
