In his book Sabbath as Resistance, Walter Bruggeman writes “Multitasking is the drive to more than we are, to control more than we do, to extend our power and our effectiveness. Such practice yields a divided self, with full attention given to nothing.”
The recent trend of adult colouring books is a move towards “mono-tasking” as a way of stilling the mind. It can be a very useful practice to lead to prayer. Print this free colouring in page and give yourself permission to play as you colour in. Find whatever pens or pencils you have around and let your creativity loose!
If you find this is a helpful practice you might get yourself a colouring in book and incorporate it into your patterns of prayer.
