creative writing as a spiritual practice
about creative writing
Exploring the power of words
to open us up to the presence of God
in our stories, our lives, our world.
This is a space to explore the places where creative and spiritual formation intersect. Together we’ll grow on our journey of attentiveness, intentionality, gratitude and empathy.
