STORIES FROM THE ROADTeaching at Seattle University: School of Theology and Ministry, Seattle USA

We taught a graduate class at Seattle University: School of theology and Ministry that explored the power of art and imagination to build a community for social change and reconciliation. Seventeen of us gathered for an intensive week to create a space for imagining and reimagining our stories with color, shape and form. Through image, word and dialogue we shared our individual creative energy from a place of wonder, while creating the essential dynamic of community. Together, we created art that lead to painting a prayer canvas that drew us into a Taizé style worship service. The interfaith service was an invitation to share our common humanity, prayers for peace and reconciliation for our broken and divided world.
