Space Made Holy: Elements of Sacred Arts & Architecture
A series of Sunday Adult Forums during Lent will explore how holiness is reflected in architecture and the arts.
10 a.m. in the Dining Room
Word as Image, Image as Word: Illuminating the Sacred — Dr. Elina Gertsman, Assistant Professor of Medieval Art at CWRU, will discuss the relationship between word and image in devotional manuscripts created between the 7th and the 15th centuries.
TED Talks/Bible Study: What Does God Want for Me?On Sundays in Lent, you are invited to think about how you are called to live out your faith. Associate Rector Richard Israel will facilitate a unique Lenten program that combines short TED talks (Technology, Entertainment, Design) with Scripture texts to set the stage for meaningful conversation about life and faith. All are welcome to attend one or more Sundays since each presentation will stand on its own. 10 a.m. in Coventry House
March 16: Our call to love God is not blind, but a relationship that we are invited to delve into deeply as our doubts and quest for understanding strengthen our faith in God. Come hear and discuss a TED Talk entitled The Doubt Essential to Faith by Lesley Hazelton in light of Psalm 22:1-5.
