Enduring Word Bible- To Completion

Enduring Word Bible- #48
Philippians   1:3-11

Thanksgiving and Prayer
Paul's prayer for the people in Philippi.
He speaks of joy in remembrance,
and is filled with the hope 
of all the good things the Lord
 has already done
 and will continue to do 
in the lives of the faithful.
 Today this was a part of a farewell service
 for a pastor and his wife 
who teamed in ministry
 in a congregation for  23 years.
What a blessing-
 this partnership in the Gospel.
May this be the prayer 
for all who serve in ministry,
 and indeed for all of the 
Lord's church here on earth.
That the Lord may bring it to completion-
what He has begun.

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.
