I liked the “behive” template I used this year (or as a friend called it, the “chicken wire”). The six angles in each hexagon provided nice little nooks for arcs, lines, triangles, and a variety of doodle shapes and strokes.
There are so many names for God. The ones I used are familiar ones–names I have heard before or read in the Bible. Forty-six words is just the beginning of a vocabulary to describe an infinite, everywhere God. Even the sum of thousands of names is inadequate to describe the one who British Catholic hymn writer Bernadette Farrell calls “God Beyond All Names.” I hope my chicken-wire lexicon will continue to expand in all directions. I hope the handful of words I use to address God will become armfuls–names which are now beyond my wildest imagining.
I’d love to hear your experiences with the Lenten calendar–the beehive or the traditional squares.
