Listening Intentionally

I've been trying very hard the past few weeks to listen very closely to the sermon, and find some bit or nugget I  can focus on during the week. Then, I write it down and put it on a post-it note on my computer screen.

I've also been trying something new, in that I've been doing an "art" journal on this sermon bit - although calling it "art" is a stretch. Mostly it's just a way for me to really think about what I've heard and try to visualize it and remember it better.

This week, the Gospel mentioned we'd be "like angels" in Heaven. Father Lam (our new pastor!) did a terrific job helping us understand what that meant. Here's my attempt at journaling it.

  1. Listening intentionally is very difficult for me - I know it's important and I try to remember to do it but I fail way more that I succeed so far. Must.keep.trying. - I like your art and the message - something to ponder! Thanks

  2. I've been working at really listening to the Scripture readings; my mind wanders so easily. I like your art journaling and hope you keep at it. ~ Rosemary in Ohio
