Lenten Journaling in Community- #1

When you don't see the road ahead...

I have shared this prayer a number of times
 over the years and yet somehow - today....
it is so relevant.
I taped a paper copy to an inside cupboard
 in the kitchen perhaps 20 years ago.

I have read it a 1000 times.

Now this lovely version
 from my friend, Diane, rests on a window sill
 in the kitchen by the table 
where I spend a lot of time.
Gazing into the back yard
watching Spring explode,
time in prayer, 
and doing stuff on my computer.
Today as my eye settled on here once again-
 I breathed this prayer-
read every line.
Then shut my eyes and rested.
"I will not fear, 
for you are ever with me,
and you will never leave me
 to face my perils alone."

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.
