I have participated in two retreats lead by Jennifer. She has a gift for finding connections between art, music, and spirituality. She has the ability to recognize and explain details and historical context simply, without condescension. She empowers participants to pursue their own path with wisdom, kindness, and humility.

Jan Holly, parishioner, chorister, and Saturday/summer service organist,

Jennifer Rundlett’s inspiring lecture on the Annunciation, Dec. 10, 2017, at St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal, Sanibel, Florida, moved listeners to tears. Her unusual perspective brought the meaning of both the art and music alive. Her audience left her talk, not only inspired, but calmed and prepared to participate more fully in the Advent celebration. This lecture was her third at the church. She is invited back yearly by popular demand. And her flute playing during the services is stellar. I am sure St. Michael’s will see her for a fourth presentation next year.

My husband and I have had the privileged of hearing Jennifer on several occasions in both large and small groups. Her presentations are engaging, thought-provoking, and encouraging even if your knowledge about art is limited. On more than one occasion, we've had opportunity to choose other presentations we knew we would enjoy, but ultimately decided to hear Jennifer again. We are always blessed.

I had Jennifer come and speak at my church during the Advent season. She did a talk about Jesus being born using music and art. Afterwards, many members came and told me they learned so many new things and were thankful to attend and get their minds in a good place for Advent. Jennifer was very easy to work with and was flexible with want I hoped to have happen. I recommend her highly and you will not be disappointed.

I have heard Jennifer present a most unique perspective on God and Jesus using the Arts as her inspiration. Her presentation is visual and auditory. She engages your mind and emotions as she explores in depth the meaning surrounding a painting or song. She breaks down the symbolism and makes it all come alive. I wish she had been with me on every museum tour I ever been on. If you want a speaker who is both gifted, insightful and unique then she is right for your needs.
