MUSINGS FROM MIKE
‘I almost fell out of my chair…’
I was looking at a catalogue of resources for the Advent and Christmas season and I happened upon a book that is a combination of candle lighting, four different kinds of prayer, and coloring for adults.
It got me thinking, ‘I wonder if this is something that would speak to people?’
A couple of nights later I was at the Church Council meeting and I thought I would ask that group. To my amazement almost every hand around the table shot up.
Another example of all of you teaching me things. There are a whole bunch of you that are visual, hands-on learners, and it seems like there is a bunch of you that like to color.
Can I be honest with you, there is a big part of me that gets it…but not really, my brain does not work like that all the time.
Now here is the part where God gets to speak. As I pray about these things and think about them the consistent word I get from God is, ‘It does not matter if it makes complete sense to you, if I can use it to reach a person’s heart and mind…I will.’
So, one of the options we are probably going to offer you this Advent and Christmas is a chance to prayer, light a candle…and color. I think it has a chance to be kind of cool.
And I can take a hint…
