Visual Faith Creative Assembly- North Carolina

 We gathered at St Paul's Lutheran Church
 in Havelock, North Carolina on 
Saturday, March 11, 2017
 for a Visual Faith Creative Assembly.
 We began by taking a look at 
Proverbs 3: 1-6.
Words that stood out in our reading:
Remember, Keep, Bind, Write,
Seek, Find, Acknowledge, 
Show, Trust, 
Straight Paths and Walk in Confidence.
That sounds like a framework for 
Visual Faith endeavors.

Each spot at the table was ready for guests.
Megan Daub and Jean White 
were the organizers of this event.
They both shared a piece 
of their "visual faith story",
as well as special guests:
Peggy Thibodeau and
Belinda Bost.
 In the morning we talked about
 roadblocks to prayer and shared 
how to make prayer cards.
We talked about Visual Prayer
and our Lenten Journey.
Our gathering included men, 
women and children.
A catered lunch from Crabby Patty's
 In the afternoon Peggy shared a
 Watercoloring Demonstration
 for Bible Journaling after lunch.
She shared how images can start with tracing.
and gave some tips on page preps.
Belinda Bost encouraged us
 to share our faith story in our homes.
She then led us in a Make and Take- 
using playing cards.
 A ready note to bless another.

A resource table had books for purchase:
Writing in the Margins- Lisa Hickman
Pray and Color- Sybil MacBeth
Complete Guide to Bible Journaling- 
Joanne Fink and Regina Yoder
Illuminated Journaling- Jann Gray
These books serve as a basic how-to library
 for Visual Faith endeavors.
It was a colorful group
 that joined us for our gathering.
Fun thank you gifts for the organizers
 and presenters for our day.
Visual Faith Coach bags.

We give thanks for all those who attended
 and helped to make this day such a blessing.
We look forward to hearing the stories 
of how more Visual Faith stories unfold.

 Giving thanks today-
 as this is the 900th post of Vintage Grace.
