Upcoming Sunday Sermon Topic
Art and Spirituality: When Imagination Runs Wild
Sunday, January 24, 2021 @ 10:30amBy DuPage UU Church member, Dr. Kerry Freedman, Professor of Art and Design Education, Northern Illinois University
Since the early days of human beings, art has been used to visualize, investigate, and reify the idea of spiritual forces. From cave paintings to church architecture, the visual arts have helped people to embody spirituality in order to worship, embrace, and sometimes control the intangible. The theme this month is Imagination, and few human endeavors reveal imagination more than the arts. This service will explore some of the ways the visual arts have supported spirituality historically and how they can act to support us now in our everyday lives.
