Lenten Journaling in Community- #1

Worship into the Week- Return

Worship into the Week-
An Ash Wednesday Reading
Joel 2:12-14
Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust
God's gracious and merciful 
slowness about me and my stubborn heart.
How slow to anger He is and merciful.
He is abounding in steadfast love.

Rend my heart that I may return to you, Lord.
May I offer my whole heart to you in my return.
In my imperfect state, 
you do not cast me aside,
but welcome me back, again and again.
What great kindness is there
 in your patient way with me.
I give thanks.

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.
