We are delighted to share the video of ‘Seeing Well: Spirituality, ethics and a little bit of delight’ which is Rev Rod Pattenden’s Zoom presentation at the Eremos AGM in November.
Watch the video here.
Rod shares his experience of concentrated looking during the 2020 periods of isolation. How can looking at images give us insight, bring joy, and help sustain our hearts and lives?
Recording Zoom presentations is a new experience for us and we apologise that the first 4 minutes is not on presenter view which means you will see most of the participants as Rod begins his talk. Eremos has permission from all the members present in this clip to share this recording. The slide show with numerous artworks and images that Rod uses to illustrate his insights starts at 3 minutes and 40 seconds into the clip.
We are grateful to Rod for this wonderful address and providing a rich springboard for satisfying conversation in small groups (using Zoom breakout rooms) after the talk. We hope that you enjoy watching it.
Eremos hopes to offer more virtual events like this which connect our members from across Australia.
Rev Dr Rod Pattenden is an art curator and theologian, and minister of the Adamstown Uniting Church, Newcastle which describes itself as a welcoming community of faith, justice and creativity. https://adamstownuca.org.au/
