This spring, we would like to invite the creators in our midst to help our community reflect on what it means to celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit through an exhibit entitled: The Holy Spirit Through the Arts.

As followers of Jesus, we are the recipients of the incredible gift of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, is God in us: our encourager and comforter who leads and empowers us in our life of faith. We read in Acts 2 about how the Holy Spirit filled Jesus’ followers, and how 3,000 people chose to follow Jesus in one day. This day when the Spirit filled Jesus’ followers is also identified as the birth of the church. Christians call this day Pentecost because it happened, in a beautiful act of symbolism, during the Jewish Feast of Pentecost, which celebrates the harvest. Our hope is that the exhibition will help our community to celebrate the gift of the Spirit, to reflect on its work in the world and in our lives, and to grow in our longing for the Holy Spirit to fill us.

If you are a poet or painter; if you sketch, quilt, sculpt, or create any other form of visual or written art, we would invite you to share your work with us! This will be an informal show, on display in our lobby and auditorium for three weeks. If children or families wish to participate, they are also welcome to do so. There is no skill level required for participation—we simply want to receive our community's creative reflection on what it means to encounter Jesus. 

Submissions need to be brought to the church by Monday, May 13th. If you would like to participate, will will need you to sign up here by May 6th.

Questions can be directed to Kirsten Anonby.
