Everyday Breath

Last Sunday I started my sermon on being awake (Mark 13:24-37) describing when I saw the painting "Everyday Breath" by Squeak Carnwath in a San Jose Art Museum. I've always been taken with the words she painted on it:






there are secrets in everyday breath mysteries of lives lived in our bodies
memories sensations seeing feeling hearing eating smelling the phone rings it is
a call to be the
one who is awake

So here is the painting. Happy Advent.
