2017 Lenten Project

This year, instead of a church organized project, I came up with doing more of a Found Poem project with the Senior Minister’s printed sermons. The first week, I chose one word from each paragraph of W. Fred Wooden’s sermon and people wrote poems using the words. The following week, I introduced more ideas for writing Found Poems, and we will continue in that vein through Lent… Enjoy if you choose. And if you’d like to read the minister’s original sermons, you can find them directly in his facebook feed or on the Facebook group for Fountain Street Church.

 

 

Embodiment

What happens to our minds when we take care of our bodies, when we pay attention to what they are telling us? This is kind of what we have been exploring lately in our spiritual expressions… I just cannot account for the wisdom of the body. Take, for example, what Don Wheeler learned in his writing.
