Lenten Journaling in Community- #1

In the Garden

You keep him in perfect peace whose                                
                                  mind is stayed on you, 
                                   because he trusts in you.  
                                 Isaiah 26:3

An evening walk in the garden
 is so peaceful.
Daylight is fleeing 
and the work of the day is ending.
Colors are more brilliant and not as
 washed out with the sun's caress.
There are multiple images 
repeated over and over 
of flowerhead and petal.
I am reminded in my "willy-nilly" garden-
that even the small details in God's world
 are planned by the Master Gardener-
the Creator himself.

Lenten Journaling in Community- #1

I have debated whether  to share the journey of Lent 2020. Seems like so much has been  shifted in our world right now. But, I am learning that in these very fragile days,  it is precisely what these practices  have offered in community-  that have become reassurance and "saving grace." So I will go ahead and share the Visual Journey  of processing with the book-When From Death I'm Free. This was the joint effort of author Justin Rossow  and Visual Faith Coach Valerie Matyas. She rounded up talented artists  to add to the visual resources
 that tie together hymn studies  of both traditional hymns  and contemporary hymns by Kip Fox.
The book incorporates Visual Faith prayer practices
 that we have developed 
and teach in our learning communities. It is a 12 week study and I will share the journey  in the order that we are doing them in community,  using the order of the pages in the book.
