Image, Myth, and Story: The Gifts of Spiritual Imagination in Challenging Times

John W. Jacobs Building • 340 Green St. GainesvilleGA  30501 Organized by Brenau University

About this event

Three IN-PERSON sessions June 3, 10, 17 As we face these challenging days, how can we nurture a practice of spiritual imagination that can transform the way we live in the world? In this class, we will explore key moments from the stories of our lives, and we will connect them with pivotal moments in the stories, myths, and legends that have helped shape our sense of who we are. We will explore crucial stories from the Biblical texts as well as legends, myths, and images that can help us ground ourselves in a greater awareness and a practice of presence that nurtures hope. When we encounter such tension and anxiety, we are called to pay attention to where we find meaning, and we have beautiful resources at our disposal that can reorient our lives. The Rev. Dr. Stuart Higginbotham is the rector of Grace Episcopal Church. A priest, poet, and author, he is the author of the forthcoming poetry collection Bones of Light. His vocation centers on the connections between contemplative practices, spiritual imagination, and congregational development.
