When I spent a week with a prison chaplaincy team a couple of years back, I was amazed by how many prisoners found peace through colouring. Contemplative colouring is quite a trend at the moment. But whether you are 8 or 88, the joy of bringing a picture to life through colouring is rather special. It’s that unique combination of using the lines already on the page, and your own imagination to animate the picture. God gives us each a life- a life with particular contours we can’t change- what shall we colour them with? How can we pray into the fixed parts of our lives in such a way that brings colour and joy?
Pray for artists
Pray for people who bring design, colour and shape into our lives- painters and decorators, performance artists and visual artists.
