    My name is Karen Carter-Allen. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Theater from Simpson College in Indianola, IA. I earned a Master’s Degree in Christian Education from Methodist Theological School in Ohio. In my last year at MTSO I took two courses in Liturgical Art. 

​

    I learned there what I now call visual theology. Visual is the ability to see, while theology is the ways of describing God. Thus “Visual Theology” is a way of describing and drawing people to God using what they see not just our words.

​

    At the website for Needling God you will find stoles, altar decorations and banners that I have designed and made. There are also hand dyed silk scarves, coloring books, and greeting cards available too. 

​

    Is there an image that would enhance the worship experience of your congregation? Does your congregation want to expand its visual out-reach? Is there a particular vision or visual that your congregation has gathered around? 

​

    Let me help connect your people visually to the words spoken and the stories told in worship. To see ways I have helped others with their vision go to www.needlinggod.com. If you would like to see what vision I am currently bringing into the world visit and follow me at Facebook. When you are ready to expand the visual theology of your sacred spaces I can be reached at karen@needlinggod.com

​

Shalom,

Karen
