Celebrating the Mystery of Faith (again and again)

Celebrating the Mystery of Faith 2

Celebrating the Mystery of Faith 3

Celebrating the Mystery of Faith 4
Walking the path of faith and celebrating the mystery with other Christians are topics I addressed in these pieces. The labyrinth symbolizes the winding ways our lives go around that eventually lead to where we need to be. The small cross within a circle is Christ's redeeming and everlasting love for his people. The Celtic knot is a symbol of the mystery of the Trinity - three in one, one in three. Woven together, withoout beginning or ending. The variety of liturgical music in the background of  2 are snippets from printed liturgies from my church. Number 3 has "One Bread, One Body" by John Michael Talbot. The second piece of music is from a Pentecost liturgy and the ending is "Alleluia, alleluia, you Lord lead us all the way!" I admit, I am almost hopeless in this regard. I intend to keep track of which music I use and then a flurry of activity takes over and things get buried under other materials. I did better on Number 4. That has "Holy, holy, holy", "One Bread, One Body", a segment of one of my favorite hymns that goes "Praise the Lord, never let your voice be still." A couple of random Alleluias I found in the midst of things, "Of the Father's Love Begotten", the end of a song that goes "be not afraid, where you go there I am with you", and below that, a line of rests. Just because. We should.

Thanks, Lynn! Actually, I've been blogging since 2006! I just don't do it frequently or promote it very much, but it's fun to have this outlet and post things in a permanent way. I know I've enjoyed your blogging.
