Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Image and Likeness

Judith McManis' Faces of ChristThe latest exhibit from the Episcopal Church and the Visual Arts is now online: Image and Likeness. The curator, Carole Baker notes in her exhibit statement,
Just before Lent ECVA artists were invited to C Robin Janning's Image and Promiseobserve Christ’s presence in the world in which we find ourselves. Where might we see Christ as he continues to be present with us through the worship of the Church, our spiritual practices, our daily habits, our homes? As the curator for this exhibition, Image and Likeness, I too allowed this invitation to guide how I experienced the holy season and I found myself pondering several questions:
  • What role does the image of Christ play in our understanding of Christian discipleship?
  • How do we learn to look for Christ in our lives?
  • And how does this practice of intentional observation affect how Christ might be present not only in the things we observe but – and perhaps more importantly – in ourselves?
  • Is there a reciprocal relationship between seeing Christ in others and others seeing Christ in us?
