Sunday, August 9: Jesus Walks on Water: Thank you to talented Gloria Dei artist Phil Tani for this rendering of today’s gospel in which Jesus saves Peter from being pulled under by the waves. Phil has been gracious enough to give us a glimpse into an earlier stage of this beautiful piece. As you ponder both the final painting and its earlier version, ask yourself:
What are the things that threaten to pull me under right now?
What are the “storms” that most worry me?
Can I hear Jesus saying these words to me: “Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid”?
What would it mean to trust that Jesus is there with me in the storms?
Sunday, July 12: Gloria Dei in Nature – This visual anthem brings together scripture readings with beautiful music and the gorgeous pictures that were shared by members of various adventures in the beauty of God’s creation. A huge thanks to Ellie Herr, whose creative vision and editing prowess made this video possible!
