Worship into the Week- Trinity

Worship into the Week-
John 8 :39-59

Only part of this section was the Lectionary reading
 for this past Sunday, 
but I think it helps to have the larger portion
 to read to get a better context.
It helps to read the previous section
 to understand why the Jewish leaders
 were so upset with Jesus that they 
picked up stones to throw at him.
Jesus had told them they were 
children of the devil because 
they did not "hear" His words.
That was maddening enough.
Then He tells them that His Father is God.
Last straw.
This section helps to "flesh out" 
other readings for Trinity Sunday.
I love to think about Jesus 
and this Three in One mystery.
Complicated even for the most learned Bible scholar.
"Before Abraham was, I am."
He would be the Light for all Nations.
He was not shackled with earthly realms.
 He was without boundaries.
Most of all- He was not alone.
All of His earthly journey 
was with the presence of the Spirit and His Father.
What comforting HOPE for me today-
that even though I cannot comprehend this gift to me,
I journey HERE-
not 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.
