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.
