Worship into the Week-Persistance

Worship into the Week-
Luke 18:1-8
The Persistent Widow

This parable has a framework of prayer.
Our God who gives more than we ask.
Persistance in our prayers and requests.
The Unjust Judge wouldn't listen
 or have compassion on the widow.
Out of frustration or the need to "move on"-
he gave her justice.
We don't know her need.
Does it matter?
She was in need- a time of adversity.
There was a momentum change.
Her suffering was made perfect
 when her request was honored.
She had strength to last.
Another reading was Psalm 121-
where we are reminded that 
our help comes from the Lord.
"The Lord will keep your going out
 and your coming in from
 this time forth and forevermore."

Lord, help me to be more persistant
 in my prayers and sharing my needs with you,
and just being "more present"
 in this amazing relationship. 
In the name of Jesus, Amen.

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.
