Christian faith is about experience, whether that’s an experience of liturgy, an experience of God in nature, or an encounter with Jesus in a way that’s personal just to you. Christians have been commenting on that experience for centuries. Sometimes we write long theological treatises. Sometimes we build cathedrals or write epic poems. Sometimes we enact that experience on our bodies through fasting and pilgrimage. And sometimes we express it through art.
On April 4th-6th college students and young adults will be gathering in Chicago for a weekend of pilgrimage and encounter with the arts. We will create a worship space at Techny Towers, meditate on the history of Christianity and the Arts at the Art Institute of Chicago, and walk the labyrinth at Saint James Cathedral. And we’ll enjoy fellowship and companionship on the spiritual journey. Join us!
