...using art as a gateway to healing, wholeness and meditation.
The five components of Prayercraft are
Inspiration – Getting the idea
We are all created in the image and likeness of God who is the Great Creator of all that is – seen and unseen. When we tap into the Divine creative energy, we can become vessels for the work that is waiting to be brought to life.
Implementation – Getting to work
We can make the art alone or in a group. Being alone allows us to connect to rhythm and flow of the process. We can pray as we become absorbed in the work. Making art with others allows us to appreciate different ways of approaching and executing the work. Because we have time to listen and respond, our conversations can become times of sharing wisdom and mutual support.
Finishing – Releasing the art
As we come to the end of the process we give the piece of art wings to fly out into the world. How it is interpreted by others is not in our control. They may see something in the art that helps them in unexpected ways.
Tithing our craft – Giving back
This step involves a decision to donate a portion of the work of our hands to a worthy cause or to someone who needs help or encouragement.
Teaching - Passing down our expertiseHelping others to learn the skills that we have mastered
keeps the art alive and gives it new outlets for growth.
