Arts, Creativity and Spirituality

Arts, Creativity and Spirituality

“What art offers is space – a certain breathing room for the spirit.” –John Updike

The arts and creative expression can open a beautiful connection to our own heart, to the Holy and to others. Encounter the Holy as you savor what others bring to us through art, theater, music and literature and experience God’s presence and love as you explore our own creativity.
