Zoom: Spiritual Tools for Artists – Wooden Creations

With Janice Ariza and Evan Clendenin

March 23, 2023

Spiritual Tools is a monthly ‘mini-retreat’ for spiritual conversation in response to a work of art. This practice of visio divina is an inspired practice of noticing, wondering and listening. Janice and Evan  provide ample time and space for participants to slow down while viewing art of various mediums. Viewing a work in this way brings new attention to God’s integrating involvement in your art/craft practice, life, and prayer. In March, the group will be focusing on creations made from wood.
