Invitation to Photography: Illuminating Lent

Welcome to the Abbey Photo Party!

I select a theme and invite you to respond with images.

Lent begins this week on Ash Wednesday, that beautiful ritual of acknowledging our earthiness and limitations, and responding to the call to enter deeply into this sacred time of prayer and practice.  This week, go on a photo pilgrimage, holding the start of Lent in your heart, and notice what images are shimmering in the world around you.

(We will return to the Monk Manifesto themes in February)

You can share images you already have which illuminate the theme, but I encourage you also to go for a walk with the theme in mind and see what you discover.

You are also welcome to post photos of any other art you create inspired by the theme.  See what stirs your imagination!

How to participate:

1. Go to the Flickr Group I have created. You need a free Flickr account first.  When you go to the link it will ask you to join the group first before posting.  Share as many as five of your images in response to the theme.

2. Leave a comment below to let us know you have joined the party and what your Flickr profile name is (you must include this to be entered into the drawing).

3. Please post the invitation on your blog or Facebook page and encourage others to come join the party!

On Friday, February 15th– I will draw a name at random from those who participate and the winner will receive a space in one of my Self-Study Online Classes (with a choice from Soul of a Pilgrim, Eyes of the Heart, Water Wind Earth & Fire, Seasons of the Soul, or Lectio Divina)

If you want a meaningful way to move through the Lenten season, consider joining me for  Creative Flourishing in the Desert with Hildegard of Bingen (February 13-March 30, 2013).  Registration will stay open until this Friday.
