2018 – LENT – COME TO THE TABLE

GLORIA DEI will be hosting a national traveling art exhibit called “Come to the Table.”
 
Beginning on Ash Wednesday, February 14th. The exhibit is made available through CIVA|Christians in the Visual Arts, a non-profit founded in 1979 dedicated to exploring and nurturing the relationship between the visual arts and the Christian faith. 
 
IMPOSITION OF ASHES: On Ash Wednesday, there are three opportunities to receive Ashes. Stop by for a prayer, the ashes, and blessing between 8am-9am and then worship services will take place at noon and 7pm.

 

COME TO THE TABLE features thirty-five carefully selected works including historical pieces by Albrecht Durer, modernist work by Jasper Johns and Sadao Watanabe, fresh contemporary pieces created by CIVA-member artists. This work, executed in a variety of media, celebrates both the rich community gathered at the Table of Fellowship and the privilege of meeting with God at his Table of Communion. From Abraham entertaining angels, to Christ’s Last Supper with his disciples, to the great Marriage Feast of the Lamb at the end of time, the table is a rich biblical metaphor. Indeed, the promise of Revelation 19 is that human history will culminate around a table where the people of God are all present. God’s Table is a place of welcome, justice, abundance, and worship.
 
SOUP SUPPEREach Wednesday during Lent there will be a soup supper and a worship service featuring the artwork and a video series entitled, “Feeding our Faith,” which is an exploration of what it means to come to the table.
 
Please join us as 6:00 pm each Wednesday during Lent for a soup dinner and worship (6:30pm).
 
BAROQUE CONCERT will take the place of worship on Wednesday, March 21, 7pm. This is in celebration of Johann Sebastian Bach’s birthday. Click here for more details on the concert.
