Lenten Journaling in Community- #1

Worship into the Week- Living Water

Worship into the Week-
John 4: 1-26
Living Water

Jesus stops by Jacob's well in Sychar in Samaria.
A number of things get shifted culturally in this story.
Jesus talks to a woman.
Jesus talks to a woman in a rather private conversation.
Jesus treats this woman with the same regard
 he would one of the women 
who followed him and his ministry.
Jesus is all about turning protocol upside down.

We hear a bit more of her story 
and Jesus unveils a new direction for her life.
Things are changing in priority for her,
as truth is set before her as Living Water.
Then, she goes back home and tells-
The people convince Jesus
 to stay with them for 2 days-
Many believed as the result of her story sharing.
She was the light that brought the LIGHT to many.

Oh, that the Lord would find us 
sharing the Good News to those around us,
especially in these days of disquiet and unknown.
In you, O Lord, we place our trust,
and rest in your great love for us. 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.
