Rev. Dr. Ann Laird Jones, the Women’s Center’s 2009 Artist-in-Residence, has her hands full — literally — with the creations of an enthusiastic class of 15 J-term seminarians, who are reflecting on eucharistic theology and wrestling with the material demands of crafting the implements of the eucharistic table. The class met with and led its first of three planned community workshops at Anchorage Presbyterian Church this past Saturday, with 60 (!!) attendees eager to participate in the hands-on creation of clay forms and share the reflection on the meaning of communion.
Word of the studio experience is getting around the seminary campus as well, and the temporary open studio in the lower level of Caldwell Chapel has been humming with activity.
What a gift this is! Thank you, Ann, for your generosity in making it available to our community!
The class “Clay Forms: Restorative Table Justice” runs through Saturday, January 24. Ann will lead a workshop focused on women in ministry, “How Then Shall We Thrive?” on Monday, January 26, 9-4, and lecture on “Integrating the Arts and Theology” on Monday, January 26, 7 p.m., in Caldwell Chapel.
