“We have the capacity within us to create anew.” -Grace Lee Boggs

Leaning into this question I posed in 2018: When we feel body, soul, mind and heart contracting, could it be preparing us for an opening to abundance?

I pray for our laboring instincts as human beings.

2014 – Notes taken during LEAD’s one-day immersion called “Buen Camino” on Saturday, Oct. 4, 2014

Before being able to serve our neighbors we must gain an understanding of where they are coming from, their culture, their values, and the challenges they face. This immersion took place in Pasadena, TX, and was hosted at Principe de Paz Lutheran Church. A big thanks to Robert Rivera, Director of the St. James Family Life Center; Dr. Luis Torres, Professor at the University of Houston School of Social Work; and Matthew Barnes, Managing Director of Family and Community Engagement; and the rest of the knowledgeable team who led this day for LEAD.

2015 – a note from Emily Scott’s talk at the 2015 ELCA Youth Gathering




“Seven Years of Wonder” is a daily look back at my creative journaling posts since 2014. I began this journey on Feb. 11, 2021, and hope to continue through Feb. 10, 2022. What am I learning about my art and faith journey thus far? What has remained constant? Where have I been changed? How is this impacting present and future art-making?

A deep bow of gratitude to you for keeping me company on this journey.
