Holy Week | Postcards

This is the second in a series of digital postcards from our travels this Holy Week, which is also Spring Break for our family. One of our first stops of the trip was an accidental one. Driving through the streets of Miami Beach, we stumbled across St. Patrick’s Catholic Church. The beautiful church offered up two fantastic postcards for today. Couldn’t resist.

Just a few weeks ago I saw a picture of the “chicken church” posted by @UnvirtuousAbbey. It’s just perfect for today’s Psalm reading!

“How precious is your steadfast love, O God! All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings.” Psalm 36:7

all take refuge under your wings
all take refuge under your wings

Near the entrance of the church, right at the corner, stands a statue of the Madonna and Child, reminding me of the Annunciation text also read on Monday of Holy Week (Luke 1:26-38). Look carefully in this picture for another symbol of the Spirit caught in mid-flight.

“nothing will be impossible with God”

#backtoschool means so many things. God’s mercy on every child who struggles with these questions.

  • What a full day it has been! The first day of orientation is done. I’m delighted to meet the incoming students and imagine our work together this year in pastoral theology and care as well as the death, dying, and bereavement course next spring. It is also joyful to meet colleagues in the work of theological education. And this evening on a walk I even spotted @alexisinnyc having dinner with her family along Broadway. [This is the part where you break into it’s a small world after all.] . 
many things will no doubt “pull me up short” in the days ahead. And you can read about my first experience of that at my blog. Today’s #Episode39 of @threeminuteministrymentor is about learning from the moments that happen when we don’t know how to respond. From this kind of pain can come truly transformed learning. #backtoschool #BackToSeminary #3MMM #3MinuteMinistryMentor #TheologicalEducation #Seminary #SeminaryLife #MinistryLife #PulledUpShort #Learning
  • Last gasp of #summer at the #mnstatefair 😎🤩😍
  • Advanced my summer writing projects and turned in one more this week. The grading is all finished and posted. New haircut yesterday. Now I have one more decision to make… Which T-shirt should I buy? ‘Cause Orientation is next week and I wanna look sharp. 😎
