arts + faith

 

We offer several opportunities to explore the intersection of the arts with faith.

 

New! The Art of Advent
Thursdays, Dec. 1, 8 & 15 from 6:15–7 p.m
We will offer a new three-week series exploring the theology of Christ through works of art (including an art exhibition in the colonnade by a Ukrainian iconographer). We will meet Thursdays, Dec. 1, 8 & 15 from 6:15–7 p.m, in Fellowship Hall. All are welcome to attend! Plan to stay for light refreshments at the end of the sessions.

 

Advent Devotional Recommendation
In conjunction with our Thursday evening Advent programming, the Rector and Associate Rector would like to recommend a daily devotional for this important time in the Church Year. The book, The Art of Advent by Jane Williams (theology professor and wife of Rowan Williams), offers daily theological reflections on beloved works of art from Advent through Epiphany. This is a wonderful way to begin each morning with our Lord as we prepare our hearts for his advent (coming), meditating on his nativity and anticipating his coming again.  To view online visit, IVPress.com/the-art-of-advent

 

Faith & Fiction
Fr. Jameson and Heather Cross facilitate a discussion on the moral and theological issues surrounding a monthly book selection. Previous titles include The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry; Miss Pym Disposes by Josephine Tey; Descent Into Hell by Charles Williams; As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner.

The group meets once a month at 5:30 p.m. in the Green-Meldrim House. Refreshments will be served. If you are planning to join the discussion, please email Fr. Jameson to let him know.
