6:30pm Ethereal Icons Artist Reception

  • St. Luke's Episcopal Church

“The single most popular comment by everyone who sees an Ethereal Icons painting is how joyful it is,” writes Erin Leeper of her original primitive paintings of Madonnas, angels & saints. These inspirational paintings will be displayed from June 7 through August 7 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 2000 Stover St., Fort Collins, Colorado 80525, and the exhibition will be kicked off by a reception on Wednesday, June 7 at 6:30 p.m.

The artist continues “When a viewer gazes upon an Ethereal Icons painting one may notice how happy the subject is. Does this make them smile too? If an Ethereal Icons painting evokes this response, then it has done its job.”

The exhibition is open Monday-Thursday 9am-2p, Sunday mornings from 8-noon, or by appointment. Ethereal Icons paintings may also be viewed online at etherealicons.blogspot.com. All paintings in the display are available for purchase.

For more information, please contact Debra Colvin.

9:30am Admissions: A Film for Peace

  • Library, St. Luke's Church

Admissions is a dramatic short film starring Academy Award® nominee, James Cromwell, that tells a transformational tale about what it takes to find lasting peace, even in the most conflict-ridden regions of our world.

In the twentieth century, an estimated 160 million people died as a result of war. Yet, despite all the suffering the human race has endured, global peace remains elusive.

Currently, an estimated 74 out of the world’s 196 countries are involved in armed conflict. This means over one third of the earth is engaged in some from of war.

An effective peace process puts us back in touch with our higher nature and reminds us of what we truly are. It unites by building bridges that transform separate interests (me) into shared interests (we). For only in oneness can peace endure.

Join us as we view the film and share thoughts and ideas on the deeper meaning of life after death, a peaceful world, and our role including:

  • The importance of forgiveness in resolving conflict and the wisdom of transcending the cycle of attack and counter-attack in our world.
  • Raising awareness about how we create our own heavens and hells on earth and inside our own minds.
  • Discovering new ways to look at events and relationships in our lives that will help us choose love rather than fear.

Facilitated by Donna Visocky
