How to deal with a field of snow
Growing up in the Midwest is sometimes a snowy experience. And as a child, there were few things more exhilarating than a field of fresh snow waiting to be explored. We would create circles, paths, and stories in the snow. Everyone wanted to go first. It reminds me of this time of year.
January is like a field of fresh snow. The entire year lies ahead like a blank sheet of sketch paper, unblemished, and unwritten. Maybe you’ve already started to fill in your calendar and ink your resolutions.
But what will you write in the next 12 months? May I make a suggestion? Instead of clutching the marker, why not ask the Master Artist to fill in the canvas of the new year? Why not let him direct the decisions and details? Why not relinquish the control to the one who can see the big picture? Why not let him trace a breath-taking design in the newly fallen snow?
There are plenty of ways to make that happen, but none more effective that the 10-week Rooted Experience. (See what others are saying about it here.) It’s an intensive, dynamic way to connect with God, connect with his church, and connect with your purpose. We are kicking off the next session starting Tuesday, January 12th at 7 pm.
