Zoom-“Prosper our Handiwork”- Scripture, Craft and Contemplative Paths
With Evan Clendenin
May 28, 2020
Do you work with your hands at your job, or as a hobby, or even both? How? What are the crafts and arts you pursue, whether as novice or master? How does this activity intersect with, or ‘body-forth’ your prayer and growth in the Spirit? This class will consider such matters as these questions raise through a look at scripture. In particular, we will encounter biblical imagery and symbolism found in Old Testament, Psalms, Pauline letters and Gospels which provide biblical sources to nurture craft as a contemplative path of prayer and activity.
Evan Clendenin is a priest in the Episcopal church, currently offering ministry on supply and interim bases, and through teaching, land-stewardship and craft work. He has served in urban, small town and rural settings. Prayer and scripture study are among his favorite things to teach.
