Next date tbd | Visio Divina is the spiritual discipline of Godly gazing, or seeing God through the creative process of art. This discipline is similar to Lectio Divina, but it is done through listening for the voice of God using our eyes. We'll gather just outside the museum gift shop before the practice begins for brief instructions and a printed guide. Please bring a pencil (the museum does not allow pens in the galleries) and clipboard, if you have one. RSVP to Cindy Meyer at if you plan to attend so she can have enough practice guides for everyone. At the end of the time, we'll meet back where we started and you are free to leave or join us for an optional meet up at a local restaurant.
