Lenten Study

Van Gogh Lenten Study

The word “Lent” refers to the “lengthening” light, the growing days that, in time, will coax the sunflowers to open, the wheat fields to rise again, and the irises to bloom. What better companion on this forty-day pilgrimage, then, than Vincent van Gogh, this apostle of light?

In this Lenten devotional, the words of Scripture and the paintings and letters of Vincent van Gogh will be our guides. Each week, biblical texts and Van Gogh’s work throw light on each other, pointing toward simple, powerful practices you can try yourself, with your family or friends, or with your congregation.

When: Every Wednesday in Lent
Time: 5:30 Dinner, 6:00 – 7:00pm class
Where: Fellowship Room 1
Facilitated by Pat Ault Duell.
