Praying in Color

Want to pray, but don’t have the words? Ready to pray, but can’t sit still? Yearning to pray, but not in the same old way? Sybil MacBeth writes in her book, Praying in Color, “Praying in Color is an active, meditative, playful prayer practice. It is both process and product. The process involves a re-entry into the childlike world of coloring and improvising. The product is a colorful design or drawing that is a visual reminder of the time spent in prayer.”

Praying in Color requires neither memorization nor skill. Instead, it taps into the child in each of us. If you’re looking for a new way to pray, join us for Praying in Color on Saturday, September 12 from 9:00 a.m.-noon. The workshop, led by Pastor Jean Newell, will be held in Classroom 1 of the Education Building at Sun Lakes United Methodist Church, 9248 E. Riggs Road, Sun Lakes. The $5 registration fee covers the cost of materials. The deadline for registration is Thursday, September 10. For more information or to register, call the Sun Lakes UMC  office at 480-895-8766.
