Friday Five- time out edition


Holy Week is almost upon us, I suspect that ordained or not, other revgal/pals calendars look a bit like mine, FULL, FULL, FULL........

Jesus was great at teaching us to take time out, even in that last week, right up to Maundy Thursday he withdrew, John's gospel tells us he hid! He hid not because he was afraid, but because he knew that he needed physical, mental and spiritual strength to get through...

So faced with a busy week:


1. What restores you physically?

2. What strengthens you emotionally/ mentally?

3. What encourages you spiritually?

4. Share a favourite poem or piece of music from the coming week.

5.There may be many services for you to attend/ lead over the next week, which one are you most looking forward to and why? If there aren't do you have a favourite day in Holy week if so which one is it?


As always, leave a comment if you play, and to encourage visitors to your blog, add a direct link to your post, using the following formulation:
<a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a>

  2. I didn't play, but this Friday Five did spark a reflection at Desert Year
    on what it feels like when Easter approaches and you are not remotely ready.

    I suppose that is, in a way, the point. Maybe I'll get to that another day.

  6. I wish I was back in grade school... and someone would put me in timeout for at least a month... preferably at the beach... because I really need a break. This Lenten season has almost been too much to handle. But... as always... God carried me through it... and I talked briefly about that here.

  16. What good questions! I've posted here. And now off to lunch with a friend and a frantic search for just the right beads for Anglican rosaries to be made at the prayer vigil tonight. Happy day off!

    Preparation has really paid off this year - I'm much, much more at peace!

  20. I have played, but I have just heard that there is a hostage situation in my town. I am presently 40 miles away, but I hurt for the families that are involved. Please keep them in your prayers

  21. "Time Out" is usually not a good phrase in a home with young children, so Sally thank you for redeeming it!
