How Are You Feeling Today?


Our church has started a photo project.

The challenge is to demonstrate how you're feeling at a given moment in time using photography and text. The point is to use these artistic glimpses into each others worlds to offer a little more intimacy or understanding amongst ourselves. So far, I have only written down my feelings on paper. There is a pic on our church's blog of someone's bare stomach with the word 'FAT' written in lipstick. I love it. I was too chicken to do that one!
It reminds us that we aren't the only ones. I think it can serve to validate things and draw us out to focus on others.


So, if you're up for sharing, take your picture and send us the link. I'd love to know.

what a great idea. It's so cool to see a young church that really wants to minister to others, not just through Christianity in their face. If we lived in CA, we would totally check out your church!
