Discerning In Color: Seeking the Spirit through Creative Processes

The critical challenge for those who follow Christ and seek to live a life faithful to God is to hear God’s voice amidst the din of all competing voices and demands in our lives. How do we know which decision will bring fulfillment or which voice is the Spirit’s leading? Contemplative creative expression assists in quieting our inner and outer worlds in order to discern God’s leading. Employing our creativity reveals the intersection of our desires and God’s desires, as well as exposes the places where our desires may conflict with God’s.  If you are ready to use your own creativity as a tool for discernment, journey with your classmates for five weeks of discovery.
