Writing on Wednesday: Pray and Color
My friend Sybil McBeth has a new book coming out in June. You can pre-order it here:
Pray in Color (an adult coloring book)
I’m excited about this new book, especially since I already enjoy my coloring books with mandalas and also one of modern art. This one will bring a new element into my coloring experience, as I learn to combine the activity with prayer.
Sybilis the author of Praying in Color: Drawing a New Path to God (2007) and Praying in Color Kids’ Edition (2009). Praying in Color uses doodling and coloring as a way to get still and listen to God. She combines her lifelong love of prayer with her experience as a community college mathematics professor to offer workshops and retreats throughout the U.S. and Canada. Her 2014 book The Season of the Nativity: Confessions and Practices of an Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany Extremist (Paraclete Press, Fall 2014) invites people to experience the richness of the holiday season at home.
