Psalm 61: A Hail-Mary Psalm

Prayer and Art...Same Process Same Goals?

In prayer we ask for gifts of grace. The gift of presence from the Almighty. Prayer is a plea for something we can’t do for ourselves. Art and prayer both require an act of the will.

Do Not Worry, Congregational Prayer Based on Matthew 6:25-27

I wrote this congregational prayer called "Do Not Worry" based on Matthew 6:25-27 for today's church service. This prayer affirms that God has a plan for creation (and for us) in both the sadness and the joy.

As I draw this flower, it really does feel like I’m seeing it for the first time. In this way, drawing is like prayer. Prayer is the practice of learning to wake up to the world, having our eyes opened.
