Journey into God

1/2/2012  Wesley Study Centre, St John’s College, Durham. WSC community worship

worship leader: Nico Hilmy-Jones

Nico invited us explore a form of prayer she often uses and she explained how the practice evolved from her searching for ways to visualise God following a head injury that has left her with an inability to visualise in her imagination. Her practice is to do some ‘colouring in’ as a form of prayer whilst listening to worshipful music.

I decided to try just drawing an image using Graphite sticks purely by an imaginative listening to God.  The image above is the result. I’m sure that I was probably drawing on my internal image vocabulary to create something but I still think it is a visual form of extemporary prayer.
