Tuesdays Artful Response

Photography, poem, poems, Poetry, poetry reading, sabbath, Uncategorized
Sometimes, there is either no time or no energy to do the things that I aspire to do. So, this week, I have no art. For two weeks running, I have not had/taken the time on Mondays to create. Mondays are my set aside day for Sabbath. In general, I try to participate in life-giving activities on Mondays. Visiting my therapist/spiritual director, creating art, Bible study. and such. Even as I typed that, I realized it isn't true! My entire last week was full of Bible study, word study, and appreciating creation. I took some photos. And don't we know that photography is an art?

Word:  I have been in search of a consistent Sabbath day and I don't know where I'm going to find it! So I think I'm sourcing this to the internet hive mind. The day that I really want for Sabbath is Monday but on the 2nd and 4th Mondays, we have the Peacemaking Coordinating Team (PCT) meetings. Also, starting in two weeks, that is when my weekly meeting with the ministry team at Riverton Park UMC (RPUMC) will be. So scratch Mondays. Mondays was previously my Sabbath day. Tuesdays has possibilities other than it is not Monday. Tuesdays has been my weekly meeting time at RPUMC and "in office" time there. It is also a great preparation day for planning worship, Bible study, etc. Wednesdays, I lead Bible study and spend time at Echo Glen detention center. Thursdays, maybe. But it doesn't
