Vincent Van Gogh & the Beauty of Lent – Midday Lenten Devotions
March 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
Midday Lenten Devotions with Pastor Megan
Vincent Van Gogh & the Beauty of Lent
Tuesdays, February 28-April 4 (6 sessions)
Vincent van Gogh devoted his life to light. The light of creation, the light of painting, the light of God’s grace – and the light in humanity, mind, body, and soul. The son of a Christian pastor, Vincent fervently set out to be a preacher and missionary himself, but his ministry eventually took the form of brush strokes and canvases: in just ten years of his short life, from age 27 to 37, he created more than 2000 luminous works of art – including nearly 900 paintings – shimmering with vitality, with passion, and above all, with light.
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 this apostle of light.
Join Pastor Megan as we meditate on van Gogh’s paintings and the scriptures of the Lenten season.
