Full course description
The Finding God in Culture series courses offer a guide for spiritual development with cultural artifacts. These courses include prayer practices, reflection questions, historical background, and related scripture.
Finding God in Culture - Paintings I is a self paced meditation course designed to invite participants to contemplative thought inspired by paintings depicting various subjects of biblical themes from Creation to the End Times. With the help of historical information and guiding questions for each artwork, participants will sit with each image and consider the artist as prophet: Regardless of whether you like the painting, what does this work claim about God, humanity, and living out our faith in the world? The contemplative mediations are intended to enhance understanding of and appreciation for the arts, invite awareness of opportunities for reflection in the world of art and culture, and offer resources for further study. Each session will include paintings of varying theological viewpoints, historical periods and global perspectives.
