Open Eyes, Open Mind: a new weekly reflective

December 30, 2011

For the past few months I’ve toyed with the idea of collating the best of what I see each week. I really enjoy sharing resources and regularly post links, quotes, and thoughts on my Facebook and Twitter accounts. But I’ve been thinking that perhaps it would be good to collect the best of those each week into a post that my friends could take a look at as they please. With that in mind, “open eyes, open mind” was born.

I’m convinced that there’s that of God all around us…ideas that provoke and prod, bring joy and hope, and spur us onward. So I’m going to try sharing things that have made me think, laugh, cry or consider over the past week each Friday (or Saturday) here on my blog. It’ll be a downloadable PDF with live links to each item. All I ask is that if something causes you to pause, smile, reflect, or reconsider that you leave a comment, thought or question so that we might engage in conversation. Here’s the inaugural one, which I’m labeling as 2012, issue negative one, seeing as we’re not quite into the new year yet. Enjoy!

A couple nights ago, I had the privilege of hosting a reflective prayer path at my house (here was the Facebook invite). We had a great turnout & people seemed to really appreciate some time to slow down, pause, and consider the presence of Hope in the advent season. I thought I’d post the guide from the night for those of you who couldn’t make it. Enjoy!
