Salt Challenge: Community of Faith

This week we are featuring Lythan's challenge - the Community of Faith. Please read her write up on the Salt blog. Here's one quote from it: "Community of faith could be a church, a group, your family, your area. You may want to focus on the highs or lows of trying to be the people together that Jesus has called us to be."
As I thought about it, I kept hearing a song in my head by Michael Card, "The Basin and The Towel." The song depicts the scene in the upper room when Jesus washed the feet of his disciples (John 13). When he has finished he tells them in vs. 15 "For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you." I know for myself - especially has a mommy of 4 children - I constantly need a reminder that I am called to be a servant. Phew! That's tough! :)

This was my first attempt at digi-scrapping since I didn't really have any stamps that I felt would do justice to the theme. I've added the song lyrics in this post since they are difficult to read in on the page.

Thanks for visiting - please click over to the Salt blog and see the beautiful work by the rest of the team!

The Basin And The Towel
by Michael Card
In an upstairs room, a parable
is just about to come alive.
And while they bicker about who's best,
with a painful glance, He'll silently rise.

Their Savior Servant must show them how
through the will of the water
and the tenderness of the towel.

And the call is to community,
The impoverished power that sets the soul free.
In humility, to take the vow,
that day after day we must take up the basin and the towel.

In any ordinary place,
on any ordinary day,
the parable can live again
when one will kneel and one will yield.

Our Saviour Servant must show us how
through the will of the water
and the tenderness of the towel.

And the space between ourselves sometimes
is more than the distance between the stars.
By the fragile bridge of the Servant's bow
we take up the basin and the towel.
