“What is that deep energy that flows through us all, that deep power in each of us, that deep hum within everything? And how is it, in all of our differences of self and culture and giftedness, when excellence emerges from one of us, when one of us really shows up as our full self in the world, even if only for a moment, we know it?
“We know it. We know.”
This winter, it was my honor to offer a series of paintings to the on-line art collective Spark and Echo. Spark and Echo commissions or creates multi-disciplinary art in response to every passage in the Bible, seeking a variety of perspectives in a large-scale, multi-dimensional, global work of interpretation.
The paintings I offered focus on the Holy Spirit understood through I Corinthians 12:1-11, Paul’s teaching on the spiritual gifts which fuel deep community.
The images, accompanied by brief reflections, may be found here:
I am grateful to curator Marlanda Dekine and to Spark and Echo for engaging me in this work.
