Seeking Christ In All Persons Through the Arts
The Diocesan Commission on Dismantling Racism and the Diocesan Youth Advisory Council will host this event to help congregations consider how their church’s art and music reflect the diversity of God’s people.
“When we look at the representations of God in our churches we have to ask if we are looking at a mirror or a kaleidoscope,” observed Christian Davis, a member of the Diocesan Commission on Dismantling Racism and Deaconess Anne House corps member this year. “If our artistic expression only reflects the dominant culture, it undermines our ability to see Christ in all people.”
The event will include opportunities to experience and create diverse representation of the divine through multiple genres. Participants will also have an opportunity to reflect on the nature of artistic representation in their own congregations in multigenerational conversations co-facilitated by members the Diocesan Commission on Dismantling Racism and diocesan youth leaders.
There is no cost to attend the Absalom Jones event, and lunch will be provided. RSVP online through Eventbrite.
