Have a blessed celebration of Corpus Christi Sunday! (In 2019, it’s June 23)
“Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’ And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, ‘This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.” – Luke 22.19-20
After reading Jennifer Fulwiler’s new book, One Beautiful Dream, I found myself inspired by her description of a person’s “blue flame”: that in the midst of our life’s vocation it is important that we continue to nurture our talents and our God-given passion for creativity.
For quite some time I’ve had a passion for audio/visual work. In the past this took the form of podcasting. However podcasting can be very time consuming and my current parish responsibilities have made this impossible to accomplish. So I got to thinking: how can I nurture this passion of mine while still having time for my primary responsibilities?
The answer almost seems obvious in hindsight but it took a while for me to get there: If a full podcast is too time consuming, then perhaps I should create something smaller! Specifically, I came up with the idea for a quick, ten second video each week on something that inspired me or caught my eye.
Thus was born #TenSecondTuesday. The name involves alliteration, but also I can create something quickly on a Monday (my usual day off) and post it easily on a Tuesday. And it may turn out to be ten seconds or more. Or less. As I say, it’s something I can easily create and share. :)
