This spring we would like to invite the creators in our midst to help our community to enter into prayer through an art exhibit focused on the Lord's Prayer.
This is the prayer that Jesus taught his disciples when they asked him how to pray. It’s a template Jesus gave us to help us think of the many things we talk about with Jesus. For example, “give us our daily bread” reminds us to pray for all of our needs—and the needs of the world around us. “Your Kingdom come, your will be done” reminds us to pray for justice, peace, reconciliation, and people meeting Jesus. There’s room in this prayer for many themes.
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, displayed in the auditorium and lobby during our in-person gatherings. 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 the Lord's Prayer.
Submissions need to be brought to the church by Sunday, March 19th. If you would like to participate, sign up here.
Questions can be directed to Kirsten Anonby.
