“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.
