This week we spoke with:

ESG Registrar, Melody Owen

How long have you been involved in ESG?

  • This is my 11th year with ESG

What is your favourite Guild Fridays snack?

  • I have to say my favourite food situation is the pancake breakfast during performance Sundays.

What is your favourite part of ESG?

  • My favourite part of ESG is watching participants relate to each other and grow in their awareness of others in the community and their connection to their spiritual selves. I also enjoy how I’ve been around long enough to watch a number of children from their first grade two year to graduation.

If you could send Jeqn on a vacation anywhere in the world, where would you send her and which fictional character would you send with her?

  • I don’t want to send Jeqn on vacation. I want to send me on vacation. If Jeqn went on Vacation she would go to Costa Rica because I know she wants to go there and she’d take me with her!

 

Thanks for sharing!

ESG Fall Presentation: Icon Encounter

Icon Encounter

An ESG Storytelling Experience

Join us on Sunday November 10th10:30am & 4:30pm
for a devised performing arts presentation of icons of Mary

Devised Storytelling & Music

Devised Performance is a process where the performers improvise and create the content for the presentation.

We are excited to see the music, movement, and storytelling that is emerging as the teens and kids of ESG explore images and themes of God’s boisterous love for each person and of our eyes opening to the world.

Ponder These Things

Through the 2019/20 ESG season, we are exploring the story of Mary, the mother and disciple of Jesus. As we look at iconsof Mary in the fall, Rowan Williams’ book Ponder These Things has been invaluable in giving us insights into the ancient Orthodox icons of the Eleousa and the Orans.

Experience Rooms

Immerse yourself in a exploration of the Eleousa and Orans icons in a variety of experience rooms, including a young child-friendly creative space, an iconcontemplation room, music stations, an art installation, and two artists who will respond to one of the icons with printmaking and painting throughout the day.

Chilli and Sweets Sale

After the presentation, enjoy a bowl of chili and home-baked treats. All sales go towards ESG’s performing arts program with children and teens.
