Religion, Spirituality, & the Arts = Two Special Sunday Services at UUI in June!

Religion, Spirituality & the Arts - directed by Rabbi Sandy Sasso, is a new initiative bringing people together from diverse artistic disciplines, practices and religious/spiritual perspectives for a sustained study and reflection on a Biblical text. Selected participants engage the sacred text theologically and it's history in literature, art, and music, as they seek inspiration to create new work.

UUI is thrilled to host the artwork created out of this workshop. In addition, the participants will be bringing us two special Sunday services.

Sunday, June 10, 10:30am:   Wrestling With The Infinite: Midrash

Genesis starts with a bang - Creation and the first people. But the stories quickly get pretty rough with murder, human sacrifice, and betrayal. How do the beginning biblical stories relate to us now?

Rabbi Sandy Sasso, RSA program director; and David Landis, artist will discuss Midrash: commentaries & explorations of biblical texts. Poetry by RSA writer artists, including Indiana's 2017 Poet Laureate Shari Wagner, will be woven into the service.

Sunday, June 24, 10:30am: Wrestling with the Infinite: Genesis re-Imagined

Dan Cooper, visual artist, and Mark Kesling, artist and founder & CEO of The DaVinci Pursuit, will lead a discussion about re-imagining Genesis for today's world.

Following the service, several participating artists will provide a tour of their exhibit to add their thoughts & inspirations about the Genesis stories they studied and answer your questions.

That each and every person is important, that all people should be treated fairly and kindly and that we should work for a peaceful, fair and free world--these are just some of the lessons our Padawan, or Jedi apprentices, will be learning on our beautiful campus during their week at Jedi Academy.  We'll have time for games, art, maker space, music and more! Click here for more information and to register.
