Listing Description

Tuesday afternoon class 3:30-4:30 p.m. (Eastern) via Zoom.

While the visual arts have served as a powerful resource for the church in past centuries, today they are often overlooked. Peggy (Margaret Adams) Parker, a long-time VTS adjunct instructor and a professional artist, will teach us how to “speak” this ancient language, exploring the ways that images can serve as companion and guide in our lives and ministries. We will discuss art from across centuries and cultures as we learn to integrate the visual arts into our journeys as Christians. Each week involves a pre-recorded 30-minute lecture and an hour-long class discussion, exploring the rich possibilities of using images in our lives as Christian in interpreting Scripture, prayer, and worship.
