Theme: God Blesses the Growth
On this third week of readings about being a blessing (from the Sermon on the Mount), Jesus’ pointed, deeper questions in the gospel lesson from Matthew 5, invite us to the heart of daily living with him. We are presented with choices from our awakening to the end of each day – and our choices, our words and actions matter, whatever they are! There is no small standard here. The bar is set high.
As we explore the art work and Holocaust stories of Angels in Human Skin, we will use the art to consider how our choices reflect our faith – and how our faith empowers us to let our yes-be-yes and our no-be-no.
Join us for this final opportunity to see the art and share the stories of artist Rev. Dr. Dirkje Legerstee – Angels in Human Skin
Prayer for the Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany
God, help us to grow with open eyes and open hearts. Help us to open our hearts to what breaks our hearts, so that we may live with compassion and peace. Open our eyes to the abundance found in Creation, in what blooms and grows even against the odds. Amen.
About ARTChurch: Inspired by the rich spirituality and deep themes inherent in art, ARTChurch looks at scripture and liturgy through the lens of the art installed in the Gallery at Sanctuary UCC. On the second Sunday of each month, we experience the Holy—and the holy in each other—through the images, colors, themes and creative energies of the installation, the artist’s perspective and that which is seen by the observer.
