I've received a few messages or had a few conversations each day this week with people who've taken Sunday's challenge. Some have sent the directions from the back of their shampoo bottles (some of which are pretty funny). Some have talked about the condition of their hair. I even received an article from the Wall Street Journal about shampoo.
This past Sunday's challenge was to shampoo twice each day this week (as instructed by the general "lather, rinse, repeat" on the back of shampoo bottles) as a way to remind us of the Discipline of Repetition. Our transformation into people who more clearly represent our Father happens as a life-long process. We need to keep going and we need the power of community. Shampooing the second time each day will help remind us to keep going in our journey. And using both hands to lather and rinse will help remind us that we cannot do this alone.
Again, there will be no magic in your hygiene practices this week...but you never know what God will use to reveal Himself to you. From the sounds of conversations so far with people this simple, daily reminder is helping them with the Discipline of Repetition. May God reveal Himself to us more and more each and every day - whatever that takes. Lather, rinse, and repeat.
