“In a broken world, the artist comes along our side and invites us to slow down. They can help us to see, despite the chaos and destruction, and in turn reveal beauty. Art is able to display before us not only an honest glimpse of our world; it can even challenge and upend our marred vision reminding us of the promise of hope, of a world restored.”

THE TOPIC: 

“The Presence of the Holy Spirit”

Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts 2:38

As Christians we have been given the gift of the Holy Spirit. In other words, the Christian faith is not just about a certain set of beliefs or rituals, but a real, life changing experience. Join us in making and engaging with art that explores the topic, “The Presence of the Holy Spirit.”
