- Worship & Music
Local artist and author Hannah Burr will talk about how she came to write her first book Contemporary Prayers to * [whatever works]; specifically, the role of creative practice, contemplative practice and prayer as a strategy of survival. Hannah learned to pray at a dark time in her life, which inspired her writing and artistic practice. She’ll share images from her studio practice, her writing process, her personal philosophy of prayer, and her discovery of a personal God. This talk will have humor, color and depth as do the prayers in Hannah’s books.
We will meet in the Hospitality Center.
