LENTEN PHOTOS 2016: Week 4

March 3-March 9, 2016

During 2016 Rethink Church, a ministry of the United Methodist (Church) Communications, is sponsoring a Lent photo-a-day challenge based on reflections and perceptions of their word for the day.

Each Thursday during Lent I will post the coming week’s words and matching photos—sometimes with an explanation.

The words for week 4 of 2016 Lent, March 3-March 9 are power, help, endure, celebrate, spirit, silence, faithful.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

POWER

There is much power in the written word,

regardless of the tool that’s used.

The written word has, since before the invention

of the printing press, been used to teach about

spiritual issues.

HELP

Even one-year-olds can offer help, as Jorday

did on her first birthday. We are here to help and

support one another in relationships with

others through God.

ENDURE

This goose endured fire in order to protect

her eggs. Many persons have endured

fire protecting their belief in God.

1 DAY 1

CELEBRATE

I was able to help celebrate

a Bruderhof wedding in Uniontown, PA.

The Bruderhof community lives out its faith

through lifestyle and community action.

SPIRIT

In the spirit of family my husband purchased

airline tickets for visit to Florida to reunite

with members of his family, and to meet

those he hadn’t met. It was in the spirit

of faith that I flew on that plane.

SILENCE

Do we want our churches silenced because

of our unbelief, our apathy, and/or our

not caring?

1997-scan0015-02E

FAITHFUL

A prayer was said in the snow-covered

sanctuary following a pre-Christmas fire

at Wesley United Methodist Church

in Connellsville, Pennsylvania.
