Event description

Description


A bilingual retreat for adult Christian artists and writers who are seeking to deepen their understanding of their creative and baptismal calls within the world.

Une retraite bilingue pour les artistes et écrivains chrétiens qui cherchent à approfondir leur compréhension de leur appel créatif et baptismal au coeur du monde.

During this week-end, participants are invited to engage in an experience of embodied reflection on the meaning of their artistic calling through movement, music, theatre and writing, with the purpose of deepening their understanding of themselves as witnesses to the Gospel created in the image of God. Through prayer, artistic exercises, personal and group reflection, we seek to provide spiritual formation, foster meaningful relationships and solidarity amongst Christian artists, and spark inspiration that will bear fruit in their creative endeavours and spiritual lives.

Durant cette fin de semaine, les participants sont invités à prendre part à une expérience de réflexion incarnée sur le sens de leur appel artistique à travers le mouvement, la musique, le théâtre et l'écriture, avec l'objectif d'approfondir leur compréhension de soi en tant que témoin de l'Évangile, crée à l'image de Dieu. À travers la prière, des exercises artistiques, de réflecxions personnelles et en groupe, nous cherchons à fournir la formation spirituelle, à favoriser la solidarité et les amitiés entre les artistes chrétiens, et à donner de l'inspiration qui portera des fruits dans leurs projets artistiques et vies spirituelles.

Justin Ruiss
- hip hop dancer, choreographer, musician
- danseur hip-hop, chorégraphe, musicien
Justin is a hip hop dance artist, choreographer, and songwriter with a formation in theology and a background primarily in youth ministry. During his teen years he developed a deep passion for dance and simultaneously began attending church more often, discovering that both faith and the arts played equally important roles in his life. During his time touring the US with Net Ministries, dance was often a part of his witness in the work of evangelization. He entered the seminary in the fall of 2005 and for several years dance took a back seat during his philosophy and theology studies. After completing his theology degree in 2013, he joined the Famille Marie-Jeunesse community for another missionary experience. During his four years with this spiritual family, Justin saw his love for faith and the arts reunited. He has currently stepped away from full-time missionary work in order to pursue further dance formation and hopes to continue learning how to be a docile instrument and a witness to God's presence in his life.
