Lenten Journaling in Community- #1

Worship into the Week- The Cost

Worship into the Week- 
The Cost of Discipleship
Luke  9: 57-62
Just following along with Jesus.
Conversations about the plan to be with Jesus.
What does it take? What does it cost?
Some answers seem a bit harsh from brother Jesus.
Do you have what it takes? 
This God became God-man.
The Word became flesh- 
giving up heavenly realm to 
live with us on earth.
A lowlier life than the birds with a nest.
No place to call home for Jesus.
The message was too important to spend time
 with house and upkeep.
Drifter life, pull up stakes, on to the next town.
 But, I am reminded how many times
 I have questioned the life, looked back, 
and wondered about the path I was on.

My prayer becomes:
"Lord, make me worthy and strong enough
 to be a part of your plowing team.
Make me stand out from the work of the world. 
And when I fail-
set me on the path again, 
and again." Amen

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.
