Pathways to Peace

This is our square from the Nutley town wide Pathways to Peace event. We drew a 10' x 10' square chalk drawing representing our church as part of the community art and peace event.

Lent and Easter
Lent and Easter

For this lenten series this year we hung a piece of art (inspired by Chihulley,but also reminiscent of Peter Max) over the congregation. As Lent progressed the piece also processed up to the front of the Sanctuary. The congregation had to look up to see it. People looked forward to the week it would be over them!

On Palm Sunday the piece flipped down to give a different perspective. It is covered with Christian symbols and symbols of emotions and our everyday life.

On Easter the piece that had traveled over the congregation flipped on it's side and became a cross. The side pieces depict the river of life once side and the blood of Jesus on the other.

(Close up) When the piece is in this direction the "punch" shape is at the center of the cross and seems to be the action that animates the rest of the Piece.

Fruit of the Spirit
Fruit of the Spirit

In our Intergenerational Christian Education program we studied the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23.) During this project groups worked to depict the idea of each of the things that happen when people are spirit-filled. this is "kindness", "love", "goodness" and "patience".

"Joy", "Self Control", "Gentleness". 22 But the fruit the Holy Spirit produces is love, joy and peace. It is being patient, kind and good. It is being faithful 23 and gentle and having control of oneself. There is no law against things of that kind. Galatians 5:22-23 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)
