Lenten Journaling in Community- #1


This page from an old book has been 
on my refrigerator for probably ten years. 
Think that is because I am  
still trying to "live into this sentence."
I was stopped in my tracks 
when I came across this gathering 
of words on a page.

There are so many phrases
 right here that get me thinking.
Soul craft
Creating and sustaining safe havens
Set apart from the world
Seek and Savor
Small authentic joys
Recurring theme
The work of women
Time to wonder into the August summer garden.
Mulling over these rich, dynamic phrases.
Because I believe in the power of the work
 of the Holy Spirit in my life,
this soul craft is about my daily life living.
Some days I think about it more than others.
And when I do, I give thanks,
for a master designer that knows the plan.

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.
