My church has a Spirituality in Art group and I need to find out when they meet. They are taking a trip to Italy in October, and though I don’t have a spare $5,000 to attend, I would love to attend the group.
Thursday night I attended a slide show that previewed the trip. They will concentrate their trip in Rome, Florence, and Assisi, and feature art by Michelangelo, Botticelli, and others. The end of the trip features a trip to the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel.
I knew I wouldn’t be able to go on the trip, but I went to the lecture anyway. I just love that my church has activities and trips that stimulate the mind and soul. I like that sometimes I have to stretch during lectures and open my mind and not just sit there and let the subject matter just pass over me. My brain (and soul) really appreciate the challenge.
I’m now on the e-mail list for the group! That was fast. I sent the inquiry e-mail when I started this entry, and I have received a response already. He said they go to museums or to visit homes to see people’s private collections. Sounds good to me.
