As I heard the story again and again, the lines that leapt out for me were the last ones, where Jesus orders Lazarus unbound. And so I made this image during our later service:
I was also playing with the markers that we'll be using in the online journaling class that I'm taking. They're colors that I might not have chosen on my own. I used words from all of the lessons of the day:
First Reading: Isaiah 25:6-9
Second Reading: Revelation 21:1-6a
Gospel: John 11:32-44
And then I came home and did some additional work with the markers and journaling--more on that as the journaling course continues.
It was a good week-end in terms of creativity. In addition to the fun with markers, I wrote several poems. I read this poem about Rapunzel's stroke and immediately started thinking about Penelope's arthritis in her hands. It won't write that poem this morning, since I need to leave to make the bread run for school. But it will be soon!
