Sightlines, Crucibles, Improvisation, Light and Beauty: Putting Art Back into the Practice of Ministry


The poet David Whyte, in “Sweet Darkness” writes, “When your eyes are tired / the world is tired also.” Especially in these challenging times, those who serve nonprofit organizations, faith communities, and other similar settings need light and beauty to refresh their visions and re-energize their hearts for ministry. Dr. Barbara Sutton is convinced that art serves an essential purpose, and has prepared this retreat to help participants immerse themselves in art’s revitalizing gifts. Join her to explore how putting art back into the practice of ministry enriches both you and those you serve.
