Come and explore how God’s creative purposes unfold in Genesis, culminating with his magnum opus: us! This course will use the arts to explore aspects of the salvation story such as creation, calling, Christ’s coming, and Christian community – putting paintings, poetry and sculpture in dialogue with biblical texts in order that we engage with God’s story afresh. Teaching will be interspersed with creative tasks and you are encouraged to pursue particular interests you have – and there is no competition!
Using a mixture of word and image, we will reflect on what it means for us to be ‘God’s masterpiece’. We will then consider how, through Jesus Christ, we are freed to ‘do the good things he planned for us long ago’ (Ephesians 2:10), and how this can play out in terms of our own creativity.
There will be opportunities to make visual art throughout the course, and no previous experience is necessary. Basic materials will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own sketch/note books/ favourite art materials. REQUIRED SUPPLY LIST

“The stressful and overloaded conditions of our world keep most of us in such a high state of torque that we seldom experience true rest. It’s no wonder that many people feel they are losing their souls in the process of trying to keep up with life.” -Kirk Livingstone
This retreat offers practical ways to counter the soul-depleting relationship we often form with life and with our work. It helps identify the tell-tale signs of our “branch withering” and encourages the ancient discipline of recollection (attentiveness) as a way of remaining “yoked” with Christ.
“He restores my soul.” Psalm 23:3

In his Spiritual Exercises, Ignatius of Loyola offers practical wisdom for discerning the movements of God’s spirit in our lives. It is a pragmatic and Christ-centered approach that fosters a genuine love and desire to follow God’s will as the natural response to Christ’s love for us. This seminar will provide a working understanding of some basic “rules of discernment” that are essential for every Christian who wishes to live an authentic life in the Spirit.
