Every Friday, I spend five minutes or so writing on a word prompt from the Five Minute Friday community. Then, I hit publish. Good for the writing muscles and for cultivating a playful approach to the writing work that can sometimes be taken oh-so-seriously.
for reformed world-savers and grace-leashers
when driven to save the world
and death knells on your watch
either we’re all free falling into fire
or we aren’t; no such thing as saving
both sides of theological coins
and spending them, too
either we’re all built to belong
or we aren’t; no such thing as slicing
the sinner into acceptable parts
and still loving them, too
and when invited to love the world
and abundant life resurrects
You can find the link up for today’s prompt here.
We all have a story. If yours includes relearning what it means to have a relationship with God, an especially warm welcome to you.
If connecting with God is something you want, but has also felt stressful lately, I have some good news—being with God can be incredibly uncomplicated. Kind of like grabbing ice cream with a close friend.
I’ve collected a list of gentle starting points for connection with God. 7 suggestions, each requiring 5 minutes or less…”quiet time” not included. I’d love to send it to you.
