Asbury offers imagery workshop


Asbury United Methodist Church in Petal is hosting a time of learning to "set the table" for worship at the workshop "Silent Teachers: Imagery in Worship."

The event is scheduled for 2 p.m. Jan. 21. 

Imagery in worship assists in opening pathways to God. This workshop will offer a biblical and theological foundation for the worship arts and a hands-on introduction to creative altar design. Jane Watts and Rebecca Youngblood from the Center for Ministry will offer ways to weave scriptural images into setting the Table for worship. 

Anyone, clergy and laity, interested in the worship arts is welcome. Participants may bring a team from their congregation or come alone. 

The cost is $3 per person for supplies. Participants can pay at the door, but are asked to make a reservation by e-mailing or calling 601-545-3006.
