Spiritual Summer Camp - Writing in (An Extra)Ordinary Time Sunday July 12 2020 at 4:00 PM

× Writing in (an Extra)ordinary Time
Summer – as a church season – is ordinary time (also sometimes known as the “green season.”) But this summer is anything but ordinary. During our time together, we’ll write from a series of prompts that explore the ways the seemingly small and ordinary can enrich our lives in larger, perhaps even extraordinary ways.

Art Song Summer Intensive (Online) Monday July 20 2020 at 1:00 PM

Spiritual Summer Camp - Contemporary Illuminated Manuscripts Sunday July 26 2020 at 4:00 PM

× Contemporary Illuminated Manuscripts
Explore artmaking as spiritual practice and create your own illuminated manuscript page. Meeting online, we will begin with guided meditation and view images of medieval and contemporary manuscripts for inspiration. Using simple materials (paper, pens, markers, magazine images—whatever you have on hand) we will combine prayers, poems or text with color, borders, drawings and collaged elements to create personally meaningful images. No previous experience with art or contemplation is necessary, only curiosity and a willingness to engage the creative process.

Beyond Choral Music: Repertoire Survey (Online) Monday July 27 2020 at 1:00 PM

× Week-Long Course
Aimed primarily at choral musicians and solo singers, this course seeks to broaden their musical horizons through exposure to repertory that they are unlikely to encounter in their musical training in choir/voice lessons. Specific topics of interest can be discussed in advance with the instructor, and the course can be tailored somewhat to “fill in” gaps in experience and knowledge. It is expected that students will take some time outside of class to listen to recordings of assigned pieces (max. 30 minutes/day) and write short reflections about the music.

Spiritual Summer Camp - Lectio Divina: A Doorway Into Creative Prayer Sunday August 9 2020 at 4:00 PM

× Lectio Divina: A Doorway into Creative Prayer
Writer-producer Julia Cameron believes that “creativity is God’s gift to us. Using our creativity is our gift back to God.” But sometimes we need a little inspiration to get our creative juices flowing. Exploring the ancient practice of Lectio Divina, learn how spacious, intentional reading (and seeing) can open an inspired doorway into prayer. Using poetry, art, and sacred texts, we’ll offer our own creative response through words or images to take away a framework for creative prayer that we can incorporate into our daily lives.
