Celebrate creativity in this meditative journey for the word-weary. Introducing a quiet, sometimes-playful, always meditative way to engage with God through color, creativity and prayer. At Play in God’s Creation is a collection of Daniel Sorensen’s evocative, searching drawings, integrated seamlessly with Tara M. Owens’ brief prompts and intentions. You’ll go on a journey through dark, arched passageways and spacious open fields, meeting God even as He slips between stained glass and sycamores. Color and contemplate, connect, explore and embellish. What a beautiful way to speak with—and listen to—the Divine. Stock #: B53098

At Play in God's Creation: An Illuminating Coloring Book

I used this as a Jubilee Gift, Birthday Gift and for Christmas, in some cases. Never have I received such positive response as I did for this--it's not plastic, not something that doesn't fit and won't harm me. Instead my recipients sent me glowing cards of appreciation for finding an alternative way to pray and experience the days of COVID in positive and creative joy.
