Text: Mark 8:31-38
For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it.
Take a moment, and some art materials, and put on paper some expression of the thing, the relationship, the character that you want to save. Express as best you can those aspects of your life that you value, cherish, and wish to preserve.
Put that paper in front of you, and spend some time with it.
Then pick it up, and lose it. Tear it up or put it in the trash or take a crayon and disfigure the images.
Sit quietly for a moment, and consider what you might now know for yourself about saving and losing.
What shifts? What doesn’t?
