The thing about disciplines is that they require discipline! I am attempting a Lenten discipline of posting a photo to illustrate a word each day while also adding some thoughts. My last post was March 1, so I need to work on that discipline. Today’s word is Spirit.

IMG_0358This morning I received a text message from a former church member and current friend. She is a former member because she now lives too far away to actually attend worship. This morning’s text led to a wonderful discussion about grace. Then later, as I thought about it, I realized I’m so thankful for the technology that allows me to be in meaningful contact with some who’s so far away. Of course face to face is good, but I’ve found that technology has allowed the fostering and growth of many different relationships. So today I show a photo of my phone as I express my thanks for the Holy Spirit working in our world in so many different ways.
