Prayer to Go: College Edition

If you’re in the business of (or generally interested in) church leadership, you might’ve seen floating around the interwebs the idea of take out boxes for faith. Sometimes they’re designed for liturgical seasons like Lent or Advent; other times they’re distributed for seasons like summer, when mayyyybe folks don’t get to church as often. The idea is that people can take the box home, and in it find supplies and instructions for practices to deepen their faith.

As I realized that I’d love to offer something like this to my college students, I also noticed that all the pre-made lists I’d found felt pretty specifically developed for families with kids. They either included activities obviously for children, or practices like baking bread that required time and tools many members of my college congregation don’t necessarily have. So after a lot of googling, some Facebook asking, Pinteresting, personal brainstorming, and a little doodling, we’ve arrived at this college-geared Prayer to Go. If this sounds up your alley, keep reading to find what I included in the boxes (all the goods for a daily practice and weekly ones), where I got the supplies, and a printable or three for good measure.

I Believe

Cover art for Davidson College Presbyterian Church’s 2018 Lent devotional; Oxford, MS, January 2018.

My artistic adventure this time was to craft an image related to DCPC’s Lent devotional theme, proclaimed by the organizers to be “I Believe.” Before I say more about what you see, I think it’s worth mentioning some bits about how we got here.

Me when I heard the theme: “Oh okay cool, yeah that makes a lot of sense for a devotional.” Me five minutes later: “Waiiit a minute, what does ‘I Believe’ actually look like?” Continue reading “I Believe”

In the Beginning

I’ve never really been a fan of official New Year’s resolutions. But here we are kicking off another trip around the sun — and this year I’m determined to make more and to write more. I made myself a sticker chart for motivation, so there’s no going back now.

Even Though

Adapted from a reflection on Psalm 27 for a joint campus ministry Advent devotional; Oxford, MS, November 2017. (See the original devo here.)

During the season of Advent, we hear a lot of “wait for the Lord!,” and this psalm certainly doesn’t leave that out. But as I reflected on the rest of it, I found one of the most striking parts to be the way the psalmist so explicitly names all of the things they’re up against.  Evildoers devouring flesh, adversaries and armies encamped. War and false witnesses breathing out violence…

And still, the confident claim…

I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
