Arts and Faith Sunday 2006

LCH’s Annual Arts and Faith Sunday is an opportunity to celebrate the role of the arts in shaping, expressing, and enriching our faith. This celebration on Sunday, February 19, included special music, poetry, drama, displays of visual arts, and even a PowerPoint presentation as we explored the theme “arts and faith.”

Over twenty members and friends shared their visual creative work through displays that filled the courtyard, the choir performed special music, and Intern Pastor Josh preached on the creative spirit that fills us because we are made in the image of our creative God. Everyone enjoyed the range of artistic expression—including drawings, paintings, woodwork, photography, and many craft media—selected samples of which are shown on this page.

To the right are “Nude in Blue,” a pastel by David Hormann; “Robert Burns,” a pastel by Judie Boutá; and an untitled fabric piece by Linda Mizuno.

To the left are “Wahine Nani,” a wood sculpture by Irmgard Hörman; an untitled work in gouache and colored pencil by Kathryn Klingebiel; “Sail’s End at Lanikai” and “La Pietra,” two pastels by Judy Boutá; “Bamboo Sunset,” in charcoal by Ray Herradura; “Yellow House, Berkeley, California,” an oil on canvas by Kelly Sueda; and a lei, also by Ray Herradura.
