News: Executive Council Action

At its regularly scheduled meeting on February 21, the Executive Council of the church discussed, voted on, and passed unanimously the following resolution. While in one sense the events of the day have overrun this action (the legislature passed and the Governor signed a bill taking away collective bargaining rights for public employees), this is going to be an issue in Wisconsin for some time to come. By this action, the Executive Council has placed itself on the side of the workers. It has also reaffirmed that discussion and negotiation, rather than dictating answers on behalf of one side, are the proper ways of solving the kinds of problems that Wisconsin faces.

News: Artists and their Art of the Bible Gathering Class, March 16-April 13

Great art has dreadful manners.  The hushed reverence of the gallery can fool you into believing masterpieces are polite things … but actually they are thugs…. The greatest paintings rearrange your sense of reality…. The power of art is the power of unsettling surprise.(The  Power of Art, Simon Schama).

 

I believe that the words above say something true about great art. There have been times when I have been walking through art galleries and a work of art has reached out and grabbed me, and insisted that I stand and look at it. The first time that ever happened to me was almost 40 years ago at the Art Institute of Chicago. They had a Monet exhibition; and when I came to one of the larger “Water Lilies” paintings, I was almost physically forced to stop walking and stare at it.
