“Tag: You're It!” (Easter Sunday) (Sun. 31 Mar, 2013 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Rodrigo Solano-Quesnel, Intern Minister.

Often it is a simple spray-paint "tag" in undecipherable text. But once in a while, there is a scribbled gem, hidden like an Easter egg, bearing witness to truths often forgotten--messages of peace, self-acceptance, and compassion. Whenever I find one of these, I pick it up in photographic form and collect it in a basket of life-asserting tags.

Aside from the graffiti medium, these tags have a rebellious style, challenging accepted notions, much like prophetic people have done for centuries. Among these people, I include the Emperor Norton I, who reigned in San Francisco over a century ago, and whose presence rekindled a passion for life-asserting truths that are sometimes forgotten. I wish to share his story as another look at the Easter message.


Art Reception (Sun. 31 Mar, 2013 12:00 pm)

In the Midst of Angels: Photographs of Sculpture from Europe and Beyond

Reception for the Art Show in Sunderland Hall during April, featuring the work of Pamela Williams.

Overview of the work & process at 11:55

Award-winning photographer Pamela Williams' romantic black and white images of European Sculpture evoke the passionate sentiment of late nineteenth century culture. The exhibit features photographs of Italian sculpture, as well as statues from Paris, Buenos Aires, and Vienna.

The magic of Williams' work is that her statues appear human.

Williams' photos have been shown in galleries across Canada, the United States, and Italy. She is the author of three books of photographs, "Death Divine", "Last Kiss" and "In the Midst of Angels".
