Punk Monk Newsletter – June 2022

I have heard from a few people that they have missed my newsletters. I’m sorry for waiting so long to update you. Back in January I shared that I was dealing with anxiety attacks. It has been quite the struggle. There have been many months where I have had an anxiety attack every week, and they could last 3-4 days. 

Thankfully I was connected to a therapist and was able to get some strategies to help recognize the start of an attack and try to curb it before it got worse. It turns out physical exercise is a big part of releasing anxiety for me. The 2nd piece of the puzzle has been medication. 

It has been a huge blessing to have the cost of my therapy covered by the Health Centre that my family Doctor is out of. I’m half way through the 20 free sessions that I was approved for. It has been a very hard and all consuming journey. I have so much respect for the strength and endurance of the people that I know that live with mental health issues. 

The team at GOHOP (Greater Ontario House of Prayer) has also been very supportive, allowing me to adjust my hours as needed.

Even with all this help I’m still having a really hard time with anxiety attacks. As of right now I’m going on a medical leave to rest, reset and focus on getting the anxiety attacks under control. My plan is to reassess with my doctor and therapist as of the beginning of July to see how I’m doing.

  • Please continue to pray for my mental health and that the anxiety I experience would subside. 
  • I would also appreciate prayers for my physical health. My chronic pain flares up in weird ways. This month my right foot, left achilles and left wrist have all been giving me a lot of trouble. 

Now that you are caught up with my health, I would like to let you know what I have been up to with GOHOP.

TrueCity Conference & Prayer Room:

Every year GOHOP creates a 2 week 27/7 prayer room as part of the TrueCity conference. It was my job to curate the stations and physical space of the prayer room. I had 6 artists contribute art for the room and a large team of GOHOP staff & volunteers help create prayer stations and the ambience of the room. The first thing people saw when walking in was a 12 foot labyrinth that I was able to draw on the floor. 

I was also able to contribute a series of paintings on the Stations of the Cross. With the help of Erin Steckley (who did a student placement with GOHOP) we created a resource for Visio Divina (a way of looking at art to meditate and pray). We had art all over the room, and invited people to be open to what God might want to say to them through what they were looking at. If you would like to learn more about Visio Divina, feel free to take a look at the attached resource. 

t was so great to see the prayer room come together. So many people contributed art, prayer stations, and helped shape the space. After 2 weeks of volunteers and the local church participating in 24/7 prayer we were getting ready to completely disassemble the prayer room. We were happily surprised to find out that we will continue to be able to use the fellowship hall at Wentworth Baptist Church as a prayer room for the next year. The idea is still taking shape but we are working towards having drop in hours in the prayer room in the fall on a weekly basis. GOHOP has been praying for a year round accessible prayer space for a while so this is a big answer to prayer.

  • Pray for GOHOP as we start to create drop in prayer opportunities in our new prayer room space. 
  • Pray that God would build on the experiences, relationships, and connections that were fostered in the TrueCity Prayer Room

Asah: Creativity & Prayer Studio

Asah has been really building. During Lent we made traditional Ukrainian Easter Eggs and learned about how for Ukrainian Christians the practice of decorating eggs is deeply tied to their faith and prayer life. 

We were able to host Asah nights in the TrueCity Prayer Room. Each week we focused on teaching people the spiritual practice of Visio Divina and then engaged in some prayerful drawing. I led a workshop on drawing in your bible (my version of underlining and taking notes). We had some new testaments for people who wanted to try out the idea but didn’t want to mark up their own bible.

Prayer Retreat at Maple Grove:

I was invited to lead a 3 day prayer retreat at the Maple Grove Christian Retreat Centre. My son Ethan and I got to stay in a very nice cabin (always great when one of your kids gets to come on a work trip).

I led people through:

  • An Introduction to spiritual practices. People engaged with the practice of Visio Divina (through the attached resource) and my Stations of the Cross paintings. I also shared some stories and ideas on Prayer Walking based on my Visual Guide to Prayer Walking
  • A Gospel Contemplation Meditation where people engaged with a gospel story through the lens of their imagination. I like to use a theatrical lens where people hear the story as the director (set the scene), then as an actor (choose a role), and finally people were invited to break the fourth wall (showing up in the story as themselves and have a conversation with Jesus).
  • Abstract Art Worksop on Drawing the Fruit of the Spirit. Adults and kids got a chance to think about drawing as a way to pray and learn about God.
  • I preached on the prayer practice of silence and solitude at Maple Grove’s Sunday service. Whenever I teach on prayer I try to include lots of practical ideas and end with a time of trying out those ideas. 

For some people this was the first time they were exposed to ways of praying that weren’t just folding your hands and talking.

Pray that God would grow more opportunities for people at Maple Grove to be exposed to the wider tradition, wisdom, and streams of the church.

Anxiety & Kindness Project:

I have been working on a number of songs and cartoons that have come out of my struggles with anxiety. Last week I got the chance to share these creative endeavours with my friends at the Meeting Place Church in a sermon. I mixed together stories, drawings and songs to talk about my journey and what God has been teaching me. Many people found the teaching very encouraging. 

I have also been posting the drawings on Facebook and Instagram. Here what I posted along with the drawing above:

In 2022 I started having anxiety attacks. It has been really hard. I have been seeing a therapist. One of the things we have been talking about is core beliefs and personal life rules. The beliefs that we live by without even really being aware of them. They are kind of like the bottom of an iceberg. We have to go down pretty deep to see what is hiding down there. If a core belief is causing problems we need to try to replace it with something more helpful.

For me, many of my life decisions have been formed around the idea of “justice.” Dig a little deeper and what I’m really seeking to do is make “perfect” decisions. If I can make the perfect decision or be perfectly prepared I protect myself from being wrong and I protect myself from failing. If I can do all that, “I WIN!” 

I have never thought of myself as a perfectionist, and in many ways I’m not, but I hate being wrong. I hate making mistakes. I always try to make the best decisions, the most perfect decision. 

This all works fine until there is no perfect thing. Every choice is not even close to being second best. Perfect justice is sometimes unattainable because it would have needed to have happened in the past, or even to someone else. The wrongs and injustices are bells that can’t be un-rung. 

That all brings me to my new goal. I just need things to be “good enough.” The idea of kindness has been coming up again and again for me. I’m starting to aim for the “kind thing” instead of the perfect/justice/right thing. The new core belief I’m trying to live into is “doing the kind thing is good enough.” 

To start to absorb this belief and to watch for kindness in my life and the world around me I’m going to be trying to make some little cartoon drawings in my art journal. 

You can see more of these drawings here: 

Please be praying that God would continue to open doors for me to teach, lead workshops and share my art, stories and songs. 

I have the following lessons ready to go for churches and small groups looking to book a guest speaker or workshop:

  • Prayer Walking
  • Silence
  • Visio Divina
  • Art & Prayer
  • Anxiety & Kindness (a teaching through stories, cartoons, and songs)
  • Entering the Gospel through our Imagination (learning the spiritual practice of Gospel Contemplation).

Financial Update:

Thank you to all the people who have been giving towards my GOHOP support fund. From January to March I was 100% on budget (my goal is to raise $2903 a month). As of the end of May donations were $1445 under budget. I did get a number of guest speaking and workshop requests so with the honorariums I have received, I actually am only about $300 under budget, as of June 1st. 

I am currently up to 16 households signed up for monthly giving plans (3 new givers signed up in the last few months). To reach my monthly goal of $2903, I need to raise an additional $1244 a month.

Please consider contributing a monthly or annual donation towards the work that I do with GOHOP.

Please be praying for my ongoing fundraising efforts. As I’m currently on sick leave I will not be able to do any fundraising right now. Pray specifically that the short term funds needed would come in over the summer months.

Do you get GOHOP’s newsletter?

The GOHOP newsletter would give you a broader picture of GOHOP’s ministry, whereas my Punk Monk newsletter focuses more on my portfolio and activities within GOHOP.

Thank you so much for taking an interest in my ministry with GOHOP.  I’ll aim to have my next newsletter out for you in September.

Grace & Peace,

Punk Monk Newsletter – January 2022

Hey Team Punk Monk!

I wanted to start off by saying thank you to everyone for supporting the online Punk Monk Fundraiser in December. Your prayers, likes, shares, encouragement and donations made the fundraiser a big success. 

There are a number of new people getting this newsletter this month, so welcome to the team! This newsletter is a place for me to talk about my ministry with GOHOP (Greater Ontario House of Prayer), share prayer requests, and to give fundraising updates (financial accountability is always a good thing). 

I won’t always be putting finances at the top of the list but in light of all that has happened in the last few months it’s a good place to start this time.

The Punk Monk Fundraiser Story:

The idea was super simple, I was just going to post selfies online asking for money to help finish my first year with GOHOP on budget. No rewards, no shaving my beard, no song or dance, just an honest ask for help. The very first donation that came in was for $10, with a note that read “Praying God multiplies this!” God absolutely took that first donation and grew it. The goal was to raise $3000 and by Christmas I raised $3655. On top of the online fundraiser an additional $1905 came in from other places, which brings the November & December total up to $5560. I am overwhelmed with the generosity God has shown me through friends, family and strangers.

Fundraising in 2022:

My monthly fundraising goal is $2897. If you would like to see the cost breakdown of my hours and rate of pay, click here
The most sustainable (and least stressful way) for me to reach that goal is increasing the number of people signed up for a monthly giving plan. Right now I have 13 monthly givers contributing about $1300 in total each month. To reach my monthly goal, I need to raise an additional $1597 each month. With the extra money that came in at the end of 2021, I have now raised enough to be paid in full until the end of February. 

Here are some ways you can be praying for my fundraising:

  • Pray that more people would sign up for a monthly giving plan. Currently 44% of my monthly goal comes from giving plans. I’m praying that this would increase to 75%. 
  • Pray that one time and annual donations would continue to make up the monthly difference. Please pray that I wouldn’t have a month this year where I have a shortfall and need to do crisis fundraising.
  • Pray that I could connect with potential givers & prayer partners in my wider network or even outside my current network. 

Here are a few other practical ways people can be helping:

  • Ask your church, small group, or network if they would like me to come speak, sing, or lead a creative prayer activity. I’m happy to connect with groups no matter how large or small. I work hard to always combine stories, learning and practical application into everything I do (whether it is preaching, singing or leading an activity). Here is a participant quote I got after leading an Imaginative Gospel Contemplation workshop at a church planting retreat:

    “One of my favourite parts of our New Venture retreat this summer was the Gospel Contemplation hosted by Randall Neudorf. I am familiar with lectio divina but have never really tapped into my imagination the way Randall encouraged us to. I absolutely loved considering the different roles, as though I was reading a screenplay from different perspectives and then as an active participant in the story. It spoke to me deeply and I’m grateful to have another way to immerse myself in the scriptures.”  – Christina  
  • If you gave a donation last year and plan on doing so again this year, consider splitting up your donation into a monthly giving planLast year’s$120 or $1200 donation could be this year’s $10 or $100 a month giving plan. I know the math works out the same but the monthly giving plan adds the gift of predictability (and stress reduction) to that number. 
  • Introduce me to someone who you think would like to be part of the Punk Monk Team. If you know someone who might like to learn more about my work, be part of my prayer team or make a donation, please make the introduction. We all have different networks of people with different gifts and strengths. I’m always happy to meet and connect with new people.

TrueCity 24-7 Prayer Room:

This year I’m leading the planning team for the TrueCity Prayer Room that is part of the annual TrueCity Conference. The conference is happening on April 29th & 30th and the prayer room will run 24-7 for two weeks after that. I’m very excited to be given the opportunity to lead this team. This prayer room has always had an emphasis on connecting people to creative forms of prayer and building bridges between churches, which are two things I’m very passionate about. If you are in the Hamilton area and would like to help create an indoor (or outdoor) prayer station, please let me know. We will also be approaching local churches and challenging them to fill a 24 hour time slot as part of their TrueCity journey. 24 hours might sound like a long time but all it takes is 24 people each praying for 1 hour to make that happen. It is amazing how fast an hour goes by in the prayer room. 

Here is how you can be praying for the Prayer Room and the planning team:

  • Pray for flexibility. We are going to need to hold all our ideas and plans very loosely, as we wait to see what the COVID regulations look like in the spring.
  • Pray for safety & creativity. We will absolutely be following all the health and safety guidelines, and we will be working hard at finding creative ways to host a prayer room that is both meaningful and safe. My goal is to always look for the idea that feels like a “get to” and not just a “have to.”  The way to find those “get to” ideas is to allow safety challenges to push us into creative solutions 
  • Pray that we can connect with the right volunteers, churches and individuals to be part of the prayer room. Last year the prayer room was online and it took a much smaller volunteer base to make that happen. Pray that we will have a strong group of volunteers and participants to re-engage with this annual expression of prayer and church unity. 

Art Journal and my Personal Journey:

When I was out Christmas shopping I ran into a stranger at an art supply store who really surprised me. They said, “Hey, Randell, you don’t know me but I follow you online. I really appreciate your art journal posts, especially the ones on pain. They are so important because so many people don’t know what it feels like to live with chronic pain.” A couple weeks before that I got a message with a donation that said “Your art is truly a ministry. I’m thankful that you are spreading God’s love through this thought provoking medium. Many blessings to you!” Both of these surprise compliments have encouraged me to keep being really open and honest with my online art journal posts. In that spirit of openness I wanted to share a little bit about my latest Art Journal post. 
Christmas is a really hard time at my house and that proved to be true again this year. Christmas day I had a panic attack and it came and went over the next 3 days. Sometimes it would even hit me in the middle of the night and I would be in panic mode for a couple hours. The best way I can describe these episodes is that it feels like everything is buzzing in a bad way (like a swarm of bees rather than a strong cup of coffee). In my latest Art Journal post I talked about my panic attacks and some of the things that helped me get through them. The response to these drawings and stories continues to be very positive. I know this isn’t the main part of my job but it really feels like an important part of my ministry. 
You can see all my Art Journal stories here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10164895225245179&type=3

Here are a few personal prayer requests:

  • Pray for my mental health and my chronic pain. I am in the process of seeing a counselor but that is just starting. I also have a spiritual director and a physiotherapist, so I’m working on my mind, body and soul. My pain has been under control better lately and I feel like I’m getting stronger. I have even been able to play guitar more recently, which is very helpful (sometimes my pain interferes with my hands) 
  • Pray for my family. I know everyone has experienced hard times during the pandemic but we have definitely found that it exacerbates our unique dynamics. 
  • Pray for my art journal posts, that God would continue to use them. Pray that the right people would see them. Pray that I would continue to find creative outlets that are life giving. 

Leader Magazine: 

For 5 years I have been writing articles for Leader Magazine (a Mennonite publication). It has been a great opportunity to talk about where I have been seeing God show up in my neighbourhood and ministry. In my latest article I got to highlight a resource I created called  “A Visual Guide To Prayer Walking.” The guide is a series of drawings and prayer prompts intended to inspire people to try out prayer walking. Every few years the magazine switches up their contributors to hear from new voices. My prayer walking article was my last piece. I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to share so many of my stories with people all across Canada and the United States.

You can download your own free copy of “A Visual Guide to Prayer Walking” here: https://randellneudorf.com/prayer-walking/

Connecting with Pastors & Leaders: 

GOHOP’s Pastors & Leaders prayer time is going really well. As the interim coordinator, I have consistently been able to book in a really diverse group of leaders for our listening prayer ministry. We have prayed with pastors, chaplains, denominational leaders, church planters, leadership teams and students. I have also been able to attend a number of networking events for pastors. This has helped me to connect with a number of leaders I hadn’t met before from a wider range of denominations. At one event, I was giving my listening prayer spiel to some pastors who were new to Hamilton when a bunch of other Pastors in the room jumped in and said “You need to go and pray with GOHOP!” It was amazing to realize that half the pastors in the room had already been prayed for by GOHOP in the last year.

Pray for my work with pastors & leaders:

  • Pray that I would be able to continue to book in a diverse group of pastors and leaders. 
  • Pray that we would continue to practice listening prayer in a safe and supportive way. My prayer is that our prayer time would open up the idea of listening prayer to leaders that have never experienced listening prayer before.
  • Pray that we would be able to pray for more denominational leaders. I would love for them to feel confident to refer their pastors to GOHOP for prayer.

Thanks so much for following along with my journey.

The Punk Monk Fundraiser!

Hey church friends, I would really appreciate it if you could take a look at the info below about my year end fundraiser. If church isn’t your thing, feel free to just skip this. If you are curious and do decide to keep reading you can think of this fundraiser as me “crowd funding” my job.

I often describe my job title as being a “Punk Monk.”

I’m on staff with GOHOP (Greater Ontario House Of Prayer), a new monastic ministry connected to the world wide movement of 24-7 Prayer. We aren’t a monastery but we do live a community life dedicated to the monastic rhythms of prayer & service. That covers the monkish part of the job but what about the punkish part? For me, punk music is all about creativity with a strong DIY (Do It Yourself) ethic. I think of prayer in that same way. We can learn to play creatively with prayer as a way to connect more deeply with our maker and each other. For me this permission to play with prayer is very punk!

The other DIY part of my job is that I have to raise my own support. Believe it or not but being a Punk Monk is my family’s primary source of income. I’m 1 year into this crazy adventure and I have been able to raise all of the money I have needed up until the end of October. I’m now trying to fund-raise an additional $3000 before the end of 2021.

Some people who have helped me so far have donated $5 and others have donated $300 (as well as everything in between). I have even had a few donations over $1000. I am so grateful for all this generosity and it has convinced me that God is going to use a diverse group of people to help me finish my first year at GOHOP strong. Would you please consider making a donation towards my support? Any amount is much appreciated.

You can make an online donation right now through CanadaHelps.org https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/53164

GOHOP is a registered Canadian charity,
and all donations are tax deductible.

If you would like to make a donation by cheque
scroll to the bottom of this page to find out how.

I think it is really important when talking about money to be 100% transparent. If you would like to find out more about my job (including what I get paid) you can find all that info here: https://randellneudorf.com/gohop/

Any money raised above the goal for this fundraiser will help create a buffer for my ongoing fundraising efforts in the new year.

Thanks so much for taking the time to consider partnering with me on my Punk Monk journey. I also have an e-newsletter that I send out about 4 times a year. Email me if you would like to be added to that list: randellneudorf@gmail.com

Grace & Peace to you!

Sincerely,
Randell (Randy) Neudorf

Punk Monk Newsletter – November 2021

Budget Short Fall

As of December 2021 it will be one year since I officially came on staff at GOHOP as a prayer missionary. Most GOHOP staff have an open ended fundraising model with no set rate of pay. Each month staff receive a pay cheque for the donations that came in for them that month. Some months are lean and other months are not. 

When I came on staff I was willing to step into fundraising my own support but I didn’t feel comfortable with not having a predictable budget. I started fundraising 3 months before officially joining GOHOP to build up a buffer so that each month I could receive a consistent pay cheque that reflected working 25 hours a week. GOHOP was happy to let me do this to make the job more sustainable for my family.

It has been amazing to see people’s generosity and belief in what I do. Overall my fundraising efforts have been a huge success. I have often had a 3 month (or more) buffer in my budget and this first year has been very stable up until September 2021. 

In my last newsletter I let people know that I had raised enough to be paid in full until the end of September. I was very surprised to find out that in reality there was a $300 shortfall. Over the next month, I leaned into fundraising, prayer and trying to find out where the discrepancy was. I felt like I was doing what needed to be done and my records showed that I had raised enough to continue to be paid in full but at the end of October the short fall was $1215. My last pay cheque was about half of what I would normally receive. Andy (the director of GOHOP) and I went back and forth on all the numbers, trying to figure out where the discrepancy was. In the end it turned out to be a monthly $192 tax called ER (employee remittance) that is charged to employers (in this case GOHOP) and that is why it doesn’t show up on my paystub. This added up to an annual hidden cost of $2300. GOHOP doesn’t take a percentage of staff fundraising (lots of charities do) but in lieu of this all costs associated with being an employee of GOHOP are paid by the staff.

I’m not going to lie, I was really upset that this deduction didn’t appear anywhere in the financial updates I received. I have also felt very overwhelmed by the stress of this financial surprise. I completely understand that GOHOP is in new territory with how I have been fundraising and I don’t begrudge raising the funds needed for my employment. Andy assures me this will no longer be a hidden cost and GOHOP will be using this as an opportunity to help staff to more accurately budget & fundraise what they need.

All that to say, I have had to increase my fundraising goal. Here are the numbers:

  • $2897 is my new monthly fundraising target. This covers all the monthly costs associated with me being employed at GOHOP.
  • $1300 is how much currently comes in each month from people signed up for monthly giving plans. This is the money that is predictable each month.
  • $1597 is how much more I need to raise each month. Up until September 2021 this money has always come in before it was needed but is very unpredictable.

I would like to thank everyone over the last year who has contributed financially to my work at GOHOP. Even though I’m in a hard season right now, I know this is still a success story. The first 9 months of my work with GOHOP has been 100% funded by you. That is amazing! This early success has given me the confidence to keep fundraising and working to make this ministry sustainable as my primary source of income.
It is so important when talking about money and fundraising to be completely transparent, so here is my fundraising plan:

  • A continued emphasis on Monthly Giving Plans
    Monthly giving plans can be set up online or mailed in with post dated cheques. People can sign up for a giving plan here: https://randellneudorf.com/gohop/donate/
  • Contact one time givers to consider giving annually. 
    This has been a good way to catch up with people while inviting them to partner with me in my second year at GOHOP.
  • Increase awareness about my work by speaking and singing more often at church gatherings and other events. Just last week I was able to be a guest speaker at Mount Hamilton Baptist Church and a guest worship leader for Redeemer Universitiy’s Act Five gap year program. I have developed hands-on teaching experiences focusing on prayer walking, imaginative gospel contemplation, art as prayer, and the practice of silence. In my music I have been experimenting with songs being sung as prayers & blessings over people. I have had the opportunity to try this and it has been well received in both church and secular community settings.
  • Widen my support network by doing an online fundraising campaign through social media. I have been reluctant to do this before because I have people following my social media profiles that have no connection to the church. Some of these people might even be hostile towards the church. I don’t want to ostracise these friends but I also want to connect with people I know from church networks. I feel like I finally have the words to balance these two communities and will be starting to fundraise through my Facebook and Instagram profiles in the near future. If you see one of my fundraising posts please “like it”  to help other people see it. The more likes, shares and comments a post gets the better.

The good news is that I’m already seeing progress! Through these efforts I have covered most of my budget shortfall in September and October. 

If you would like to help cover my costs in November & December, 
you can make an online donation through CanadaHelps here:
 https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/53164

If you would like to send your donation by mail please visit here: 
https://randellneudorf.com/gohop/donate/

This practice of fundraising also has an important prayer component. 
Here is how you can be praying:

  • Pray that the funds needed to finish 2020 well would come in.
  • Pray that monthly giving plans would increase to 70% of my budget. 
  • Pray that I would meet people outside of my current network who might want to contribute financially.
  • Pray for my own spiritual ethic of fundraising. Pray that I would trust the Lord and not have stress overshadowing the work I’m doing. Pray that my conversations about money would also lead to good conversations about prayer and following Jesus.

A Few Quick Updates:

  • I’m over halfway through being the interim coordinator for GOHOP’s Pastors & Leaders Prayer time. Networking with pastors and leaders comes very naturally to me and I have found this opportunity to be very fulfilling. Almost every week we have met with a different leader for prayer. About half of the pastors have requested to meet in person. Many of our zoom prayer weeks have been with pastors outside of Hamilton. We have prayed for leaders as far away as Saskatchewan. 
  • Asah Creativity & Prayer Studio is having our next in person workshop on Wednesday November 17th at 7pm. The idea is to bend spiritual practices towards creativity, and to bend art practices towards prayer. You can check out the detail on our Facebook event page: https://fb.me/e/1EiYbjpS5 
  • On October 15th, GOHOP entered our 20th year of prayer.  Check out our online Guest Book to send your Birthday message to GOHOP. You can also see other people’s stories, thoughts and photos.

Thanks for taking the time to read through all the financial info in this newsletter. I really appreciate you journeying along with me through this.

Grace & Peace,
