Friday, November 9: The theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge is Renewal.
Liturgy is like a strong tree whose beauty is derived from the continuous renewal of its leaves, but whose strength comes from the old trunk, with solid roots in the ground. ~ Pope Paul VI

Education involves a continual renewal of the mind. These three Ethiopian girls are on their way to school.
renewal of the mind: going to school
Renewal can also be just relaxing with friends and playing a game, even if the game involves using bottle caps for checkers.

Renewal. This word conjures a variety of images, from bright blossoms to meditating monks. When I think of “renewal,” I think of starting a new job, arriving in a new city that’s ripe for exploration, walking through a new apartment with white walls, and taking a hot shower after a challenging day. I think of beginnings. Life. Opportunity. What images does Renewal conjure for you? Get creative. Think beyond the usual images (a sunrise, a birth). We want to see what else you can come up with.
