Enduring Word Bible-Faithfulness

 Enduring Word Bible #51
Joshua 24:15
"But as for me and my house, 
we will serve the Lord."
This verse might be familiar as a herald
 of a household set apart in this world. 
A rally cry after a covenant renewal.
I really like to add the earlier verse with this-
"Now therefore fear the Lord and serve him
 in sincerity and in faithfulness." v. 13
Because God has been faithful.
I saw this Scripture verse sitting on the windowsill
 when I arrived at a daughter's house yesterday.
This caused me to go back and ready this story.
And when you see the art teacher daughter 
has cut celery ready for printing--
tried Distress Ink-
 Festive Berries
Worn Lipstick
and then colored in with 
pink colored pencil.
Also used a stamp from His Kingdom Come.

The story ends with the people of Israel
 marking the spot where they
 have witnessed to each other their 
"faithfulness to the Lord" promise.
 I guess that is what these words signify
 set in our houses for all to see.
Part accountability and 
Part reminder.
May we all pledge with sincerity
to serve the Lord.

not sure why-
 but I am ahead a whole day in my mind)

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.
