By engaging our imaginations, we can deepen our understanding of spiritual truths and open our hearts to divine revelations.
Through this event, we aim to encourage individuals to tap into their God-given imagination and explore how it can lead us into a more intimate relationship with God. Let us embark on this journey together as we discover the power of imagination in honoring God.
