Practicing the Presence

Our greatest desire is to know God, enjoy God forever, and in the process, to touch life at some depth.

Don Postema, Space for God.

Some are play-filled explorations of artistic practices that serve to relax the trap of compulsive busyness and drivenness. Others are designed to develop spiritual practices that help us see beauty in ordinary things and even learn to pray.
