Fellowship & Communion
The Episcopal Church and the Visual Arts has a new online exhibit up as part of a year long series devoted to baptism. The current exhibit is based on this affirmation from the service:
Will you continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers?The image above is James Mangum's "Prodigal Son" a painted wood carving relief based on a painting by Van Gogh. You can see all of the work of the exhibit here: Thumbnails.
Victoria and I will be curating an Advent exhibit. My contribution to the current exhibit is a photo I took in the Dominican Republic earlier this year: And in the prayers. A better version of the same idea was included in the exhibit. Steve Polston tells of his photo below,
Marge has been a member of this congregation since birth — 1923 — and worships in the church several times a week. She is present as often as the doors are open. She does continue in the prayers and the fellowship and the breaking of the bread. Even when there is no literal bread to be broken, Marge offers her prayers as a sacrifice. In this photo, Marge is waiting for the other worshippers to join her in the choir pews.
