Throughout the Middle Ages, various types of paintings and manuscripts were created to aid Christians in their religious devotion. Today, there is a growing movement of bringing color to your time with God – Bible Journaling, Praying in Color, Faith Books, Faith Journals, and Sermon Notes. Visual Faith groups are forming in churches and neighborhoods and people are sharing their devotional journey on social media.
The SED summer outreach conference, called the ROC- Reaching Others for Christ Conference will once again have a dedicated space for devotional art. The conference will be held in Roanoke VA - July 26 & 27, 2019.
