As a collective we long to create safe, intimate, and redemptive spaces for the soul to heal, restore and flourish in community with trusted companions. One of the primary ways we do this is through our round table small groups. Here we are invited into places of sharing art and story as we explore and experience spiritual formation, respond to our creativity and serve one another.
In the next JAC Series we are focusing on the creative process that we each navigate as artists. Sharing with others our work in-progress and the personal experiences we have is a powerful operating manual for not quitting.
Two nights in the series we'll welcome guest artists to join with our own artists as they take us behind the scenes in their artistic process. On another two nights we’ll gather with artists from our chosen artistic discipline for a casual sharing of what we are working on and more focused conversation. And as we have done in our past two series, round table discussion will provide opportunity to regularly talk through what we are working on.
While diving into the creative pathways that we take, with the struggles and breakthroughs that happen there, we will ask the profound question “why?” Taking the time to answer this question can bring clarification, inspiration, purpose and meaning to the actions we take. For some of us the revelation that comes is potentially life changing.
