MARCH SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
Our monthly 
spiritual practice activities are creative ways to connect to God, and can help with the hectic day to day stress of schedules and dominance of technology. May these 'practices' bring balance, as you and your family cultivate new ways to engage with God and each other. 

Usually I have one spiritual practice per month, but this season and this time in the world inspires me to offer several this month.


LENTEN PHOTO CHALLENGE

Lent is a time to reflect on our faith and grow closer to God.  In these times we have some time together in and around our homes to reflect on God and where we see God and feel God's Presence. What are some things in our home that remind us of God?  Snap a picture of those items or spaces in your home.  Where or when do we pray at home?  Snap a picture!  Where is your favorite window to look outside at God's creation?  Snap a picture!  If you can venture outside safely, what do you see outside that God has created?  Wow! Snap lots of pictures! How do we show our thanks to God for all these things and spaces?

Create a 'Reflections of God' Photo album on your phone, computer or printed.  Look at and add photos throughout the season of Lent.

Have Fun!  I hope to share these when we are all together again!
