Come to the Quiet– Praying with Images
Leader: Pat Shea
May the eyes of your hearts be enlightened. Ephesians 1:18 reminds us that we are blessed in prayer with “spiritual eyes” and encouraged to prayerfully recognize the Divine presence in ways expressed in the visual arts. Encountering a piece of art with “spiritual eyes” can awaken a new understanding of the Divine Artist at work in our lives. Fee: $20
Come to the Quiet is an opportunity to enter a day of peaceful, spiritual refreshment. The day begins with a short reflection on ways to engage with and respond to the Divine Word that comes to us in so many ways—a word, holy text, a poem, a piece of art, music, others, nature. Following the short reflection is quiet time to use as you choose. A nutritious seasonal lunch is served at noon and after lunch, continued quiet time. The day ends with a short sharing session.
