Fashioning the Bride

God speaks to each of us as he makes us,
then walks with us silently out of the night.
These are the words we dimly hear:
You, sent out beyond your recall,
go to the limits of your longing.
Embody me.

                   –by Ranier Maria Rilke

Many of us have a complex relationship with the church and its dysfunctions. Paul warns us that many of us are weak and sick or have fallen asleep because we have not discerned the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 11:29 NKJV).  This blog is an invitation to better discern the body so that the church might rise up out of slumber and begin to cooperatively act and effectively bring justice to the world.




Meet Jenn: Synthesizing thinker out to communicate a new level of discerning the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 11:29) as a person, an alive, complex being that is at once the Body, the Bride and the City.

Fashioning The Bride

"God has been speaking to me over and over about being romanced as the bride.... not just our one on one individual romance with Jesus... but what does it look like to be romanced as the bride?... to be romanced as a whole unit/body? To be romanced as each person making up a different cell of the Bride of Christ?

This image is the Bride. The strokes of oranges and reds are an abstraction of crowds of people... representative of each person making up a different cell of the Bride... and she is turning into her face just soaking in the presence of her lover... this is what worship looks like: soaking/basking in the presence of your love."
