March 25, 2018: “Designs of Faith”

Presenter: Mark McGinnis

Mark McGinnis, a member of the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship and artist, will present a guest service based on one of his art projects titled Designs of Faith.

The basic content of his project is a study of four Western, four Eastern, and four Tribal religions. The project has four sequential components: research on each faith, an essay he wrote from the research, a preliminary study for the final painting, and finally an 8’ X 6 1/2’ five section painting for each religion.designs-of-faith-2

The large paintings are in the collection of the Visual Art Center, Washington Pavilion of Arts and Sciences in Sioux Falls, SD. His intent in producing this project was to gain a deeper understanding of how religion created systems and designs around which people could organize their lives.

Unitarian Universalism honors the differing paths we each travel. Our congregations are places where we celebrate, support, and challenge one another as we continue on our spiritual journeys.

Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.

Newcomers of all religious paths or none at all are always welcome. We are handicapped accessible. Please park in the rear of the building. Child care is available.
