A Weekly Newsletter from Pine Street Church
A Word from Andrew... Welcome to our "Again and Again" Lenten series... We Lament Again, We Mess Up Again, and We Begin Again...
Dear Pine Street Church Members and Friends,

Welcome to the First Sunday of Lent.

The creator and curator of our Lenten series, "Again and Again," Denise T. Anderson, writes: "Again and again, God meets us where we are, but doesn’t leave us there. We shift from sinking sand to solid ground, navel-gazing to community, personal pietism to justice for all, and away from behaviors, both personal and systemic, that frustrate God’s vision for the world."

Lent is the sacred season when we all have a chance to begin again.

I hope that you received your Lenten care package in the mail by now, and I encourage you to use the devotional booklet to enhance your faith formation and worship experience over these next weeks. Access it electronically by clicking HERE.

May the beauty, truth, and goodness of God's presence comfort you and inspire you and transform you---again and again--as we join together in worship on this First Sunday of Lent.

Join us for worship on the Pine Street Church YouTube channel today at 10am. You can also connect at our website at: PineStreetChurch.net
With heart,
Andrew

REMEMBERING JACK FOWLER
Jack W. Fowler
1932-2021

The door cracked open and a young Jack Fowler stepped out into the waxing light of a cold Iowa morning. Jack had work to do. A depression era kid with a single, disabled mother, Jack was the breadwinner at a very young age. His days went something like this…READ MORE ABOUT JACK'S LIFE...
ART BRUNCH
Sundays at 9:30am
Art of the Soul - Faith Ringgold

Best known for her story quilts, Harlem artist Faith Ringgold has used art to tell her story of black women's empowerment. Her early work tells the story of growing up in Harlem - the good, the bad, and the ugly. Her work is unflinching in telling the truth about her struggle being a minority within a minority.

Sometimes personal empowerment means creatively imagining her place in art history. In some of her quilts, she situates her alter ego in her beloved Paris at a time before her actual birth in 1930, where she mingles with famous artists and public figures. These are stories that should have taken place if black women had been given their rightful place in the art world.

This presentation will focus especially on her French Collection series which will both challenge and inspire us to tell our own story, even if the truth of empowerment requires some artistic license.


See you Sunday! And please share this event with kindred spirits.

You can learn more about each week's teachings at the WAMA Art Asylum page HERE.
