We contemplate the word PROMISE as we look to the third week of Lent. Join Steve Thomason as he creates an original piece of art during the livestream that is a visual meditation on the readings found in the Revised Common Lectionary for Lent 3.
God spoke words of Law and Promise at Mt. Sinai. Jesus cleansed the Temple in John 2 and promise to rebuild it in three days.
The lectionary readings are:
Exodus 20:1-17 – Ten Words
Psalm 19:1-14 – The Law is like the heavens
1 Corinthians 1:18-25 – foolishness of the cross
John 2:13-22 – Jesus cleanses the Temple
You are invited to participate in any of the following ways:
- simply sit back, relax, enjoy the contemplative practice of watching me create the art.
- participate in the chat with Pastor Jeni. Ask questions, make comments, share prayers and prayer requests
- create your own art during the session and email it to Pastor Jeni

We contemplate the word TRUST as we look to the second week of Lent. Join Steve Thomason as he creates an original piece of art during the livestream that is drawn from the readings found in the Revised Common Lectionary for Lent 2. God made promises to Abraham. Jesus said take up your cross and follow. Do we trust these promises?
Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16 – covenant with Abraham
Psalm 22:23-31 – promise to generations
Romans 4:13-25 – faith of Abraham
Mark 8:31-38 or Mark 9:2-9 – Take up your cross and follow
this is the image created during the livestream
The journey began on Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2024
During the Livestream event I will create a piece of art that is a contemplative reflection on the theme for that week of our Lenten Journey. The live chat will be hosted by Rev. Jennifer Grangaard, the Campus Pastor at Luther Seminary, St. Paul, MN.
The artwork that I create on Monday evening will then be incorporated into the chapel service on Wednesday of that week. We will follow this pattern for each week of Lent. Links to the Livestream will be updated as the journey progresses.
stay tuned for updated links…
