PUTTING YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD
The Journey Series for Eastertide
MAY 19th – Traipse (To walk or move wearily or reluctantly. The importance of walking through the challenges of life rather than around them.)
This series is about how we walk – both physically and spiritually – and how that literally shapes us for the better. It is rooted in real life, inspired by the lives and faith of the engaged people who form Carleton Memorial’s Christian Development Group. It’s a group whose sole purpose is to think seriously about how we live out our values – from the way we express them to the way we put them into actual practice.
At CMUC – you might say that we believe that theology is where what is “above” and what is “on the ground” intersect. You might say that this kind of grass roots theology is a way to preach to each other by learning to really listen to each other. In this way – we journey together.
And our Eastertide journey will also span time and space … The images that we are using in our PowerPoint worship slides are from my college friend Dieter Riedel. He has produced a collection of black and white photographs that he calls: Insomniac Theatre.
They are middle-of-the-night glimpses of downtown Toronto. The ones he is sharing with us tell a story all on their own. He has intentionally selected them based on this theme as well. He is very much journeying with us – and we with him.
This will be a true mind-body exercise – as in exercising your spirit in the same way you would exercise your body or your mind.
Be blessed. Be a blessing.
