It’s hard to believe, but we’re already half-way through the ESG season. Thank you to everyone who came out to Icon Encounter. It was a wonderful experience. Check out our new Fall newsletter for a photo summary of the event!
We are now on a break until mid January. Stay tuned for more Feature Fridays in the new year, and don’t forget to mark your calendars for our Spring presentation, May 9th and 10th!
Join us on Sunday November 10th, 10:30am & 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.
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.
