“Not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit alone . . .” Biblical tradition holds a prophetic calling to young and old, able and infirm, cursed and blessed to be working in the Spirit together–conservative to contemporary, spanning the age gamut in religious worship. The partners of GUILDWORKS have their history in collaboration,shared resources and participation in ethics and theology, liturgy, sculpture and music rooted in solid resources and wisdom of artists, educators and architects, rabbis and cantors, chaplains and pastors with ecumenical ground in faith-informing artworks. Through GUILDWORKS and our collaborations with other ministries and partners these are given modern forms, offering vibrant conversations bearing rich witness to God.

We’ll continue to bring GUILDWORKS online these next few months; as we move and connect through dialogues, come! interact via our youTube channel with the different dimensions and planes of engagement in faith-formation and pastoral care–our language and lexicon of God’s word and work in the world as artistic voicing of the Gospel. Please journey patiently with us. And Godspeed.

Works embody faith-based artistic expression voicing the Hebrew Bible and/or the Gospels (inclusive of basic tenets of Abrahamic faiths).

Works cohere spiritually, devotionally, theologically in the Hebrew Bible and Gospels, also addressing fundamental tenets of the Abrahamic faiths.

Works articulate contemporary expression in voicing and making a joyful noise to God—across the religious gamut from (small-o) orthodoxy to (small-r) reformed tradition to (small-c) conservative theologies– in new, vital forms of devotional artistic expression in the Abramahic faiths.

Artforms include those historically established and endowed by patronage, may also be contemporary and modern or re-envisioned as classical, customary, traditional, inspirational, devotional, liturgical or ecclesial.

Holy Hill Project

HOLY HILL PROJECT    8|10 Pieces in Abrahamic Tradition Andover Newton Seminary + Pacific School of Religion GTU | Center Jewish Studies | New College Berkeley

God, who may abide in your tabernacle? Who may dwell on Your holy hill?  Psalm 15: 1-2

ministry-collabThe HOLY HILL PROJECT hopes to partner academic and artistic resources from the Graduate Theological Union’s Pacific School of Religion, New College Berkeley and CJS, (on Holy Hill) in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, with Andover Newton Seminary’s CIRCLE, and ‘Journey’s on the Hill’ interfaith programs, creating a bridge in innovative theological work taking place in both distinguished Seminary consortia on East and West coasts. Our cross-paneled digital-to-laminate aluminum artwork series combines the Beatitudes in the Sermon on the Mount (Christianity) and the words of Jeremiah 31:3 “I have loved you with an everlasting love, and I draw you to me with lovingkindness.”(Judaism’s Hebrew Bible) in an inter-religious, reflective, multi-panel/muti-sensory design installation.The HOLY HILL PROJECT envisions multi-paneled, museum-modern graphical scriptural sculpture entitled Holy Hill, An Everlasting Love installed in the two primary host venues of Andover Newton Theological School and Pacific School of Religion and/or the Graduate Theological Union library, or another arts ministry venue. Potential sponsors and venues for display include currently slated Christ Church, Santa Fe (New Mexico) and will embrace key lay and ecclesial destinations between Andover Newton Seminary in Massachusetts, and the GTU. Panels will be constructed in an exhibition-ready format, prepared for installation and ready for portability between sites. The HOLY HILL PROJECT connects Scripture to the places people seek communion with God and community with each other–encouraging God’s word, entering hearts where people love art and resonate with words of faith. Currently LOGOS GUILDWORKS is working with dynamic interfaith organizations like Faith House Manhattan, and we also anticipate working with CIRCLE and Journeys on the Hill, the interfaith|inter-religious dialogue programs at Andover Newton Theological School and Hebrew College, as well as the Pacific School of Religion, Center for Jewish Studies and New College Berkeley in the GTU, in Berkeley California.

Artworks of LOGOS co-join the essential covenantal call to Abraham in Genesis, L’chi lach lech l’cha vaderech Go out from your country and kinsmen to be a blessing unto the Nations…I shall bless you, and in you all the families of the Earth shall be blessed” similarly holding Jesus’ call to us to be “Salt and Light, a city on a hill,” beatific light of the world and new Jerusalem for humankind.

Partner Orgs-Ministries

GUILDWORKS collaborates with partner organizations and ministries of philosophically and spiritually companion pastoral directions, encouraging exchange in (Abrahamic) faith-based ministry and collaborating in projects of shared substantive theological-ecclesial ecumenism. In partnering with various religious, secular-civic, theological and interfaith organizations, GUILDWORKS seeks to inform and encourage transformative religious experience–through collaborations with arts-worship communities, and monasteries or retreats with emphasis in spiritual formation and contemplative life. As these venues manifest through partnerships and urban explorations of living into Hebrew bible and Christian Gospels from revitalized and resonant spheres, GUILDWORKS enjoins congregants and communities, religious and lay people to vitally pursuing focused lives of fully lived faith.
