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.
