I’m currently nursing tendonitis in my right hand and so it will be helpful for me to take a little break from blogging. I’ll see you on the flip side of healing. 🙂
In the mean time, there are 816 archived images that can be searched on by theme, by category, by month/year, if that would be desirable.
Lord, we pray for all those who are out of hope. Those with illnesses, no work, no place to live, and entire communities crying out for justice. Bring us together so that your hope flows within and through us. ~Lynn Willis
Today the Greater Milwaukee Synod’s Theological Conference begins. The invitation extended to me is to do what I do — listen and respond creatively through image.
Please join me in praying for the Light!
I’m heading to Milwaukee today to be the Artist in Residence for the Greater Milwaukee Synod’s Theological Conference, Sept. 19-21. Pastors and church leaders will be working through material based on Brené Brown’s “Daring Greatly” book, an experience that will be facilitated by Rev. Sarah Ciavarri. I’ll be journaling images and beginning each session with a 10-minute centering reflection with an image. Theoretically, it sounds great… hoping it works in practice, too!
I’m reminded of some journaling images that were created (but never shared) the last time I was in Milwaukee with a new friend, Heather. Heather wrote a lovely book on retreats and one of the chapters was about a birch tree. You’ll be seeing birch trees over the next couple days as I get settled in Milwaukee.
It felt a little like I was missing something today… and then I realized that I had forgotten to schedule a blog post. Good thing faith and hope are always willing to be our companions.
Oh the comfort, the inexplicable comfort of feeling safe with a person – having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dina Craik
The Holy waits for me — am I preparing?

Wild grace calls us broken, beloved, brave.
