Content of this workshop: ­
After having chosen a psalm for each day, we will briefly outline the structure of the passage and build artistic representations which flow from section to section. Taking the lead in turn and bouncing off each other’s expression, we will build a setting from prayer without words. We will encourage creativity and truthfulness that we hope can be transposed in the church context.
