About a month ago, I wrote a post about Overcoming Dead Ends and Discouragement. The response was incredible. As I read the incoming comments and emails, I felt inspired and awed by the stories of faith.
The post touched something deep in all of us.
I felt the buzz of encouragement as people shared their experiences. In other words, I got caffeinated with faith.
So, here’s the challenge —
What if we explored topics of faith together more often?
The idea to kick off another Faith Barista Jam got me excited.
Keep Faith Fresh
There are a lot of different pressures pulling on us in all directions — away from faith. Our spiritual focus tends to drift, as we battle the dailiness of external demands.
We were never made to live apart from faith and we feel it. But God continually draws us back and never gives up on us. He uses everyday people and everyday things to spark our faith.
When we find what brings us closer to God and share it with each other, encouragement mixes into our daily journey of faith.
That is why I’ve decided to put aside some Thursdays for us to explore topics of faith, as a community.
Join me in my quest to keep faith fresh. Share your thoughts on Thursdays.
By simply sharing our faith walk, we become a refreshing community, offering glimpses into our everyday faith.
Will you take the Faith Barista Challenge?
The Thursday Faith Barista Challenge
Take The Thursday Faith Barista Challenge: Keep Faith Fresh
On a Thursday, I serve up a topic of faith for us to consider. You write the post.
One week later, we post our thoughts to share.
If you blog — Publish your post the following Thursday & submit your link the day of.
If you don’t blog — Post your thoughts as a comment.
Jam with me. Thursdays.
Faith. One week at a time.
So, What’s a Faith Barista Jam?
Well, it’s what musicians do — a jam session. It’s free form and imaginative. Everyone’s invited to bring their improvisation to the table.
Instead of talking about scales and riffs, we serve up shots of faith.
How It Works:
1. On a Thursday, I serve up a topic of faith to consider. You write the post.
2. One week later, we post our thoughts to share.
If you have a blog — Publish your post the following Thursday & Link up on the day of. (You’ll have an opportunity to submit your link on Faith Barista.)
If you don’t blog — Post your thoughts as a comment the following Thursday.
3. Build the Keep Faith Fresh community and invite others to check out the jam:
Include a link back to Faith Barista in your post. ~ or ~
Grab the Faith Barista Jam Badge to place in your post.
* Required Ingredient: Keep it real.
It’s a jam session. So, as time allows, say hi & drop a comment when checking out the community faith blends.
Looking forward to jamming together!
Keep faith fresh. Step right up… and serve up your shot of faith.
Next Thursday 9/16
