Visual Prayer of Sticky Love (with the “other”)

Sticky Love with “the other” refers to loving those who challenge our values, our perspectives, our beliefs. Sticky love is messy. It can include misunderstanding and heartache with those we care about.
Let this visual prayer reveal something fresh and delightful for our gummy situations:

When awkward love comes,
lean in, listen, open hands —
be present to layers (of story).

This visual prayer was created using the Prayer Squares creative practice. Prayer Squares are designed as a bite-size creative practice to lead you to surprise, delight and vision in your prayer life. Join me this year to create one Prayer Square per week.

If Ukraine is heavy on your heart like it is mine, I invite you to move through this complimentary creative practice to create a card of caring for someone you love as you tend to your personal grief/sadness. You can create this with materials you have on hand (markers and paper) in about 15 minutes. Let us sow love into our world. Blessings.
