    • Religion & Spirituality

Welcome to the latest episode of "Finding Our Rhythm," hosted by Lisa Work and Rich Nelson. In this episode, we are privileged to have Kristen Wheeler, a modern iconographer, as our guest. Kristen brings a unique and spiritual perspective to the ancient art form of iconography, which we are eager to explore.

During the episode, we discuss the impact of Kristen's icons and how people react to them, particularly those who approach her at events. Her genuine intention to share rather than convert is evident, and people are drawn to her work because of it.

Kristen shares her deep connection to iconography and how she has made it a daily spiritual practice. She discusses how the art form has evolved and its significance in her life. We also delve into the lives and teachings of notable saints, including Rose of Lima, Rita of Cascia, Roch, Jesus the Gardener, Pauli Murray, and Francis. Kristen's passion for sharing their stories is infectious, adding to the episode's appeal and depth.

A significant aspect of Kristen's work is its ability to transcend religious boundaries. She takes pride in the fact that the saints she portrays connect with people of all beliefs, including those who identify as agnostic or atheist. She emphasizes that her focus is on sharing the authentic stories of these saints, not conversion.

Finally, Kristen is committed to portraying the saints as real, flawed individuals. By acknowledging their imperfections and challenges, she makes them more relatable, offering comfort and companionship to those who seek it. This approach has resonated with many and is one of the reasons her work is so highly regarded.

We hope you enjoy this episode of "Finding Our Rhythm" and gain new insights into the captivating world of iconography.
