Blessed Strangers: Gaining Appreciation for Different Faiths

this weekThe conversation continuing this Sunday will help us know how to share our Christian faith stories with our multi-faith neighbors, co-workers and friends. Seeing God's image in our neighbor is at the heart of our baptismal life as disciples of Jesus Christ, and this exploration into interreligious engagements will make us more aware of and more equipped to meet "beloved strangers" on our faith journeys. So, why not try this during late-Epiphany: Learn to hear the faith story of others, learn to tell your faith story, learn to treasure multi-faith encounters all more fully as we move "toward our mutual flourishing" together.

Organizational meeting this Wednesday, March 5
Following the 6:15 p.m. Ash Wednesday Service

Karen Peeler and Jean Cotting would like to invite parishioners to join them in a Lenten study of Richard Rohr's book, FALLING UPWARD: A SPIRITUALITY FOR THE TWO HALVES OF LIFE, beginning the first week of Lent, March 5 (Ash Wednesday) and continuing till Easter, April 20.
RohrFr. Rohr is a Franciscan priest and founder of the Center for Action and Compassion in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  He is the author of numerous books and an internationally known speaker and journalist. In FALLING UPWARD  (which comes with workbook) Fr. Rohr offers a new paradigm for understanding one of the most profound of life's mysteries: how our failings can be the foundation for our on-going spiritual growth.  Drawing on the wisdom from time-honored sacred and secular texts, the author explores the two halves of life, and takes us on a journey to understand how the disappointments, heartbreaks, and losses of life actually are stepping stones to the spiritual joys that the second half of life has in store for us.
This will be a lay-led study and discussion. If you have questions or interest in being a part of this study group, please contact Karen Peeler (614-668-6271; or Jean Cotting (614-561-1488;

What you receive in your share and other helpful information is sent out in a weekly e-mail so you always know what to expect!
Share Costs: $250 for 1 share – typically feeds 2 people

In Remembrance of Me
Lenten Art Exhibition
March 2 - April 20

DelawareDuring the season of Lent, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church at 45 W. Winter Street in Delaware, Ohio, will hold the art exhibition, In Remembrance of Me, featuring works by contemporary artists from around the world on the theme of the Last Supper and Holy Communion. The title is taken from Luke 22:19, when Christ takes bread, breaks it, and gives it to his disciples to eat, telling them to do this “in remembrance of me.”
Mention the Last Supper to art lovers and the famous Leonardo da Vinci painting comes to mind. This show presents artworks about Christ’s final meal and his institution of the sacrament of the Eucharist different in style from the Renaissance masterpiece. Over 30 pieces are on display from 18 countries, including glass icons from Romania, a lithograph from Austrian Modernist Oskar Kokoschka, a wood carving from Slovak Folk Artist Jan Krlicka, and a stencil-made image from Japanese Printmaker Sadao Watanabe.
One section of the exhibit presents artistic reflections on the bread and wine of Holy Communion as the body and blood of Christ and on Christ as the True Vine. You can see lithographs about these themes from two masters of contemporary art, Henri Matisse and Jasper Johns, as well as commissioned pieces by American Icon-maker Jodi Simmons and Filipino-American Artist Wayne Forte. Another wall display features artworks with Eucharistic motifs by artists from the St. Peter’s Church community.
This special Lenten exhibit opens the Sunday before Ash Wednesday and runs through Easter. Visitors are invited to see In Remembrance of Me on Fridays from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. and on Sundays from 12:00 to 1:00 pm., following the 10:30 a.m. worship service. During Holy Week, the show will be open Monday through Friday from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. Individuals and church groups are welcome to visit on other days by appointment. A guide will be present for those interested in taking tours of the exhibit.
