Worship into the Week- Feed and Tend

Worship into the Week-
John 21:15-17
Along the shore of the Galilee-
 Peter's home territory.
They had finished eating breakfast with Jesus.
An intimate setting and placing 
for the conversation between Jesus and Peter.
We don't really know how-
 but I picture a head nod to Peter from Jesus.
Over here...
Some unresolved things between the two of them.
Peter wanting to fess up, 
and Jesus taking the lead on the conversation.
Then Peter's frustration 
with the seemingly redundant commands.
But, how many times do
 we need to hear the message?
How many times have we 
denied him and turned away?
A reminder to me that in 
these moments of selfishness or fear,
Jesus steps in to say-
just keep doing the right thing.
Follow me.
Tend the sheep.
Feed them.
Disciple them.
So,  who is discipling you?
Who are you discipling?

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.
