I like Restoration because of RestoArts. Am I allowed to say that?
Of course, I love this church for many reasons, especially the strong community feel, but what originally attracted me was RestoArts. In fact, my artwork became part of Restoration before me. For example, my painting Be Still was featured on the blog Christmas Day alongside music and a poem in 2013. I also participated in the 2014 Lenten RestoArts Instagram challenge, which provided an incredible way for me (as @indigo24) to explore the themes of Lent through photography.
Months later… I finally followed my art and found my church home. I love how Restoration uses the arts as part of worship and has a group committed to this purpose. It’s been a year now and I’m so thankful that I can truly use my gifts in a church setting.
I’m excited to be teaching the next RestoArts workshop: Mixed Media Prayer Journaling.
