I think a true sign of genius is recognizing a brilliant idea when one of your friends comes up with it, and then immediately incorporating it into your life.
I’m about to do that here.
As many of you may have read in my last post, A Year of Practice, on Epiphany Sunday at Southminster, we pass out stars that each have a word written on them. . These words hopefully will give people a different way to approach their prayer life. Is God, perhaps, speaking to them through the particular word they got when they grabbed their star?
My experience this past year with my word was very powerful. You can read that reflection here.
Many of you requested Star words for your own pondering.
And this is the moment when I am stealing my friend Sarah Leer’s great idea. Sarah suggested I ask people to reflect on their Star words this year and then share their thoughts with others.
So, this post introduces my new and hopefully recurring feature. If you have received a word (or would like one) and would be willing to publicly reflect on your experience with your word this year, please let me know. If you have your own blog, you can publish it, and I can cross post it. Or if you don’t have a blog, you can be a guest writer on mine.
Doesn’t this sound like fun?!
