Please join us for an Eremos Quiet Morning 

Saturday 3 March 9.30 am - 1 pm

Led by Frances MacKay with an introduction to the artworks by Doug Purnell, the curator.

Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture Chapel

15 Blackall Street, Barton

These new works by 16 artists from diverse backgrounds invite – challenge – us to reflect on the familiar Easter narrative in new ways. While evoked by that story, they represent the artists’ responses to the universal, existential questions arising from specific stages in that story, and from what is happening in our world today. The two additional stations –the resurrection and the Emmaus road appearance – suggest ways we find hope in the face of suffering and grief.

There will be time alone for personal reflection, and time for sharing together around these powerful themes of mortality and transcendence. The ACC&C venue offers a well-appointed exhibition space and an inviting outdoor area and gardens.

A suggested donation of $10-$20 towards costs would be appreciated.

RSVP by February 26th with your name and phone number to franmackay@optusnet.com.au  or mob: 0418 405 347.

About the facilitators:

Rev. Dr Doug Purnell, artist and retired Uniting Church minister, is the curator of the exhibition. Dr Frances MacKay, educator, spiritual director and retreat leader, is editor of Eremos magazine.
