Reception for Artist Heather Sisk, March 31


The Center for Christian Spirituality of GTS invites you to an art exhibition and reception where you can meet artist and spiritual director Heather Sisk and view her sculptures on the theme of Mary Magdalene as Spiritual Guide. The reception begins at 6:00pm, on Saturday, March 31, in Seabury Auditorium. Sisk is working under a grant from the Evangelical Society of the Episcopal Church to explore spiritual direction through the story of Mary Magdalene. Her project involves creating original sculptures of Mary Magdalene and using them in leading a quiet afternoon at the seminary earlier that Saturday.

The quiet afternoon, from 2:00-5:00pm, will invite participants to experience spiritual direction through the arc of Mary Magdalene's life and witness.  Mary Magdalene reveals what it means to be fully present to God, Sisk explains, and to bear witness to God’s life-giving acts. She is, therefore, a model for all who seek a deeper relationship with the holy and for any who would serve as a spiritual companion to others. The day will include readings, group exercises and prayer and will be accompanied by four original, meditative sculptures of Mary Magdalene.

All are welcome to come to the reception and also to register for the quiet afternoon, both of which have complimentary admission. To register for the quiet afternoon, click here.
