Several years ago our church creative arts ministry offered an event called “7” — a self-directed art-walk focusing on the last seven words of Christ spoken from the cross. Similar to a prayer-walk, an art-work utilizes art to help you prayerfully meditate while walking through a series of stations. There were seven stations and at each was a banner with the words of Christ, a poem by author and poet Sarah M. Wells, and a painting by artist Matt Durbin.
We will be re-creating a “virtual” version of “7” through the Create-A-Day posts with poetry by Sarah and artwork by Matt paired with songs. Our hope is that these posts will prepare your hearts for Resurrection Sunday, help you consider the cost of Christ’s priceless gift, and worship Jesus more deeply during this blessed season.

We’ll spend the week looking at expressive writing, specifically through journaling. Perhaps you’ve thought about keeping a journal but never got around to it. Hopefully this week will inspire you to do so! Journals are good for artists of ALL genres!
Today’s post is a perfect example of how an artist (in this case a writer of prose and poetry) can use his or her gift to help bring restoration, redemption and healing to others through their art form. In her piece entitled “Field Guide for Resisting Temptation,” Sarah Wells risks exposure of her own faults and failures to explore the fine line between flirtation and affair.
