Worship into the Week- Neighbor

Worship into the Week-

Luke 10: 25-37
The Good Samaritan Parable
 I remember this story from childhood
and especially love thinking 
about this story from the perspective
 of the injured man and also the helper.
On healthy days we are the one offering the hand.
On some days we are the recipient.
But, we are always in the symbiotic relationship
 of neighbor and other.
Sometimes we are the one offering help
 and other times we are the receiver. 
The important thing to remember
 is that we must not fall 
into the ladder climb momentum
 and see others always below us
 and thus we are-
always the helper.
It is important to sit back and learn
 about the life spot where others find themselves.
Time to learn from them.
Then be ready to assist, 
as needed,
and then come BACK to check.
Thinking especially about how to model this
 across the border.
 It is our #1priority-
to be good neighbors.

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.
