The Maker's Space video Session #2- "Culture Care" and Pen and Ink

  VIDEO YOUTUBE LINK: Supplies needed:  Paper and Pen, any pen will do.                              "Culture Care" by Makoto Fujimura TEXT OF THE VIDEO: Welcome to The Maker’s Space!   Any space can become His space where we slow down and meet with Him.   We will use art to slow ourselves and   our minds down so that we can hear Him.   Our God loves to be WITH us and is continually talking to us.   We have to practice listening skills and focusing skills so that we can hear Him and have a conversation with Him.   Art helps us converse when we don’t know what to say, and He shows us things in our art that He wants to say to us. Art also teaches us new skills and brain research has shown us that being a bit uncomfortable when we are learning new things, helps push our brain from system 1, which is basically mindless tasks that don’t require learning, to system 2 which is where the learning takes place.   So, it is good to push ourselves to learn
