To know and be known is a basic human desire. We invite you inward to ask the questions that live deep within: Who am I, God?, Who are you, God?, and Who are we, God?
Each film in this bundle was created with space for breath and with words and images meant to be taken through the eye into the heart (even the reflections are intentionally short for your own discovery). Arranged with inspired blessings from the lectionary for Year A, we hope these films will befriend and accompany you as a guide toward a greater knowing of self, humanity, God, and the blessing of Christ through the contemplative practice of a visio divina (latin for divine seeing, this prayer practice is a method of using visual art to lead you towards God’s movement within).
This visual experience was created in friendship with singer-songwriter and teacher Shellee Layne Coley (with poems from Kelly Ann Hall) . Coley’s songs don’t wrestle with the death-times of life, but instead embraces darkness as a teacher on the path towards God’s wholeness dream.
We hope these expressions of our human experience bring you company in your onward search toward Love, Grace, Truth, and God within you so you can carry those ingredients into the world. The films are ordered so that each week the theme builds upon the last.
