Come join the fun and explore the creative process in this pre-Lenten workshop using a style of art that was popularized by 17th century artists in Holland. These Dutch masters depicted objects in their paintings that symbolized the futility of vane pursuits. Think vanity of vanities in Ecclesiastes 1:2. This class is for anyone regardless of artistic ability! After collecting printed images and actual objects, we will explore how they become symbols as we create a multi-layered artwork. All supplies will be provided. However, it would be helpful if each person could bring a pair of scissors and 2-3 magazines and/or newspapers if you have them. The workshop is free, but you must register - click here to register.
The Luther Forum meets Sundays mornings at 8:45 am in the Lutheran Campus Center. The forum is using On Earth As In Heaven: Daily Wisdom for Twenty-First Century Christians, by N. T. Wright, as its discussion springboard. Wright is one of the most influential Biblical scholars of the past fifty years. On Heaven As In Earth is a compilation of excerpts from his many books, edited and organized around the church year. Readings are short enough to be used as daily devotions and the class will focus on the assigned readings for a week. Participants generally obtain their own book (either printed or electronic), but if you would like the church to get a book for you, please contact Bill King. The class will meet in person, but persons may also participate via Zoom using this link. If you need to call in use this number: +1 646 931 3860.
