Sometimes doodling and coloring are just a way to relax and de-stress. Other times, they are a way to be with God. When words fail, the mind wanders and the body protests, the childlike practices of coloring and doodling can help us to pray. In this participatory workshop, we will pray for others, explore a word of Scripture and learn how to create our own prayer coloring pages. No artistic skill necessary! Bring paper, pen, colored markers or pencils (if desired) and a hard surface to draw on.
Author Sybil MacBeth is a dancer, doodler and teacher.
