Events

On December 2nd, Adult Education invites you to join a tour of the BYU Museum of Art exhibit, "To Magnify the Lord: Six Centuries of Art and Devotion.  The exhibit demonstrates how religious art has sought to praise the Lord and penetrate the hearts and minds of believers. 

The exhibit features more than 75 original paintings, including outstanding pieces by beloved artistic masters such as Ridolfo Ghirlandaio, Rembrandt, and Edward Poynter, and a stained glass panel from the First Presbyterian Church in Astoria, New York  as well as LDS artists like Minerva Teichert.

The tour will begin at 10am.  Parking and admission are free.  The address is North Campus Drive, Provo, UT.  Please RSVP to Gay Cookson at gaycookson@comcast.net by November 28.  All ages welcome.  Gay will arrange carpools, if people are interested.  Attendees are welcome to stay in Provo for lunch following the tour.

Soul Collage

Soul Collage is a meditative process that engages the imagination and the intuition using images, scissors, paper, and glue in a quiet, prayerful space. You will be amazed by what you discover about yourself. No artistic tendencies required, just an open heart and a willingness to engage. All materials provided. 

Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer is simply sitting in 20 minutes of silence, open to God's love and your love for God. It's prayer beyond thoughts, emotions and sensations. No experience is necessary, just a desire to take your relationship with God to a level deeper than conversation, to pure communion!
