"Blessed are the Peacemakers"

As we begin Lent, we will start our 40-day photo challenge again. There are several reasons for this: one, while we were on Home Assignment last summer, during a conversation with my Grandpa Garnett, he said, 'if you do it once and it goes well, it should then become a tradition'. Another reason is that one of the purposes of Lent is to be more intentional, to slow down, and to deepen your faith. To me, part of slowing down is noticing life....noticing the ordinary. This is a list of words I compiled from Rethink Church, South Central Synod of Wisconsin, Unitarian Universalism, and Busted Halo. Because Colombia is living into a new phase of peace, every Sunday the word will be 'peace'. We heard many positive comments about the photo-a-day last year, so, it now is our tradition. I hope you journey with us...."Blessed are the Peacemakers".
