We gathered in Springfield, Virginia for a Visual Faith Assembly on August 3, 2018 to bring resources and encouragement to Visual Faith practitioners.
We welcomed Lutheran Social Serves- National Capital Area to the event to offer prayers and encouragement for the Immigrant Families and especially for the children in the United States detention centers. Chief Executive Officer- Christine Connell came to meet folks and head the prayer project. We are hoping to use this event as a prototype to add Visual Prayer to events and gatherings.We used prayer cards found in Resources on the Visual Faith Ministry website and then added Bible verses to pray over the families and children.
Anyone can pray for these families and share their prayers using this hashtag- #WelcomeInColor.
Welcome comes in many languages.
We printed off the Bible verses and then they could simple be added to the prayer cards. Prayer time finished them with watercolor and colored pencil. May these families be blessed.
We also tried our hands at Polaroid Praise - watercolor and Sharpie pens on watercolor paper.
Visual Faith Coach Erika Radke also helped with some string painting- In and out of our Bibles.
Time to check in, encourage creativity, and see all the ways that the Lord is writing the stories in our lives.
