A Harvest of Attributes: art that examines the fruit of the spirit.

 In a season of change and transition, art is a deep voice, which speaks authentically to our times, and the reality of what is and to the possibility of what might be. The Art Junction and New Haven United Methodist Church present art that examines the fruit of the spirit, which identifies the characteristics of a Christian through visual art.

The Fruit of the Holy Spirit is a biblical term that sums up nine attributes of the Christian life according to Paul in his Letter to the Galatians “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” Galatians 5:22-23.

Art is a symbol, pointing to something else that is beyond us and what we can strive for as an individual and as a community… this group exhibit is The Art Junction and New Haven United Methodist Church’s method to reach out and share a visual story with our community. Community arts provide a new gathering place, a cultural and spiritual touchstone that is a source of community revitalization and neighborhood revival.

The exhibit invites the viewer to examine, participate and listen to the visual story of the attributes of the Christian life that can be gained through surrender to the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Art Junction is a community-based art education program designed to bring gallery space, local art exhibitions, lessons and creative opportunities to the Willard area for adults, teens, seniors, and children to learn to create together a better community! The Art Junction is a ministry of the New Haven United Methodist Church.  For more information on this or future programs at The Art Junction contact Kevin Casto M.A., Director, at 419-935-3404, email theartjuction@yahoo.com or visit our blog https://theartjunctionwillardohio.wordpress.com on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Art-Junction/190323094344714?ref=hl
