Worship into the Week-Witnesses

Worship into the Week-
 Matthew 11: 2-15
Messengers from John the Baptist

John had heard about Jesus- the Christ,
while he was in prison
 and sent his disciples to ask if Jesus was "the one."
Jesus responds by telling those
 who had been with him-
 to tell John about what they had seen and heard.
They were witnesses,
they knew.
But, Jesus may not have seemed like
the Messiah.
The expectation was different
 than who arrived to fill the role.
In this moment Jesus speaks highly of John
and highlights the job 
of the one who came before.

Lord, help me to see the ways 
that I can be Your witness
 in each and every day. Amen. 

(This reading had me remembering 
childhood conversations about what we would
 fear the most- going blind, deaf,
 getting a bad disease or that we can't walk.
Now, I think about these things with being much older,
 and simply must cling in trust to my Jesus.
In the end- Jesus heals all things.)

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.
