Painting and prayer connections

Posted by Dana Hinton

October 16, 2023

On Sunday, Sister Luke Boiarski and Sister Chris Kunze gathered with ten young women for an afternoon at Nazareth to connect and engage in a fun painting activity. The afternoon began with introductions of one another and a prayer meditation to connect with the inner and creative self. Then, artist Sister Luke led the group step-by-step as each painted an autumn scene. After three hours, the blank canvases were transformed into alive and colorful paintings. Many expressed delight and a bit of surprise over their creations and wonderment at the uniqueness of each person’s rendition of the same image. The time together concluded with a soup supper and an autumn blessing.
