Relentlessly Pursuing – 21.03.2014.
To kick off the year in January our Living Colour SEED workshop explored the theme of the vine and branches, how we are connected as individuals and how we can be connected to God.
John 15.4 – Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
Growing and developing with God requires us to be prepared to be cut back, pruned and be willing to embrace and seek new beginnings. Part of the workshop involved exploring how we can use each other as a support for this.
Participants thought about what place they would like to get to with their faith or life, or how they would like to feel this year. The rest of the group created a series of movements that enabled the participant to get that place, or emotion, and then drew the participant into the image.
I wanted to encourage the participants that what they feel or is going on in their life does matter and that people around them can support them, and through that support you can grow closer to God.
In life we can’t just give up when it gets tough, you need to keep pursuing, and be relentless about it.
