Our Creative Retreat bags are designed to provide everything you need to spend a day in quiet contemplation, exploring creativity as a way of connecting with God.
About these bags:
Sometimes it can be hard to simply be still in God’s presence. The ‘to do’ list nags at our brain and our hands twitch towards our emails. In these times a creative retreat day can be a great alternative. Entering into God’s presence through his nature as creator, allowing his word to nourish us as we form letters or pay attention to likeness can help us to slow down and spend time with God without distraction. After all, you can’t check your phone when your hands are covered in clay! Don’t let yourself be distracted by trying to make something other people would admire, the process of attentive creation is your purpose rather than mastering a craft.
