Photography as a Spiritual Practice
The Missional Wisdom Foundation is proud to announce the launch of Journey, our newest educational initiative.
As we experiment with alternate forms of Christian community in the Missional Wisdom Foundation, we also stop to share the lessons we've learned along the way. Journey is a hub for learning and engagement with standalone courses taught by our exceptional group of instructors. Earlier this week, subscribers to our Journey email list received a one-time code for 20% off a course. To get your code and receive notifications when new courses become available, sign up here.
One of the courses now open for registration, Photography as a Spiritual Practice: Reclaiming Our Encounter with God, is taught by Ryan Klinck:
This past semester at Perkins School of Theology, I led groups of students through a spiritual practice that I designed for a final project in my Spiritual Practices and Pathways class. This spiritual practice interwove aspects of lectio divina, silence, iconography, and film photography into prayer space. Many students were moved by the experience, especially during a time when they were overwhelmed with finals.
Here are a few examples from the project:
Photo 1: Little Bottle
Photo 2: Papers
Participant 17, Photo 1: Stairwell
Photo 2: Glasses
Register soon - the class will begin on June 12, and space is limited!
