Here is your weekly dose of Friday Focus, a smattering of what I’m reading, listening to, learning, watching or pondering.
What I’m reading – “Let’s Talk about the P-word.” Yvette Quantz. A personal friend and a dynamic woman in our community, Yvette Quantz offers a deeply heartfelt reflection on personal prayer – a cry from the heart. This article is not only well written, but it is also inspirational and encouraging.
Music Video I’m enjoying – The Official Video of “Her Love is Killin’ Me” by Huey Lewis and the News” has got to be one of the most enjoyable music videos I have heard and listened to in a very long time. It does help that I am a big fan of HL&N … nonetheless, this song is so simple, so fun and so clever.
What I’m watching – “My next guest needs no introduction with David Letterman.” There are times when I watch an episode of this Netflix broadcast just to listen to something that goes beyond standard late-night banter or the talking heads on network tv.

Sacred Scripture I’m pondering – “God … manifests through us the sweet aroma of [Christ]… For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among all…” 2 Corinthians 2:14-15
Quote I’m pondering – “I imagine Lent for you and for me as a great departure from the greedy, anxious antineighborliness of our economy, a great departure from our exclusionary politics that fears the other, a great departure from self-indulgent consumerism that devours creation. And then an arrival in a new neighborhood, because it is a gift to be simple, it is a gift to be free; it is a gift to come down where we ought to be.” – Walter Brueggemann, A Way Other Than Our Own: Devotions for Lent
Lenten Peace and Blessings.

*** An important instructional tip when using Braintap. When using the Braintap at home, if you do not have the Braintap headset (which is strongly recommended, but not necessary) it is best to use it with earbuds or headphones, even if there is no light element. You want to do it either sitting or lying down and able to close your eyes. PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE WHEN USING BRAINTAP.
