Angel in front of our church.
The Celebration of the Spirit, and the Fire never to be extinguished.
That is the device of a group of ten Roman Catholic and Protestant Churches. From last Thursday, which was Ascension day, till Whitsuntide on 8th and 9th June we will celebrate the fact that our religion was born on Whitsunday almost 2000 years ago. We keep our churches open from 10 am till 16 pm to receive visitors, offer them coffee or tea with a piece of cake. One of the members of the church has made an excellent slide show of the history of this building and its interior.
We try to combine this celebration with an exhibition of religious art from our local sculptor, Leo Jongenotter, who creates sculptures of steel. His sculptures are linked to religious conceptions and ideas. Art and religion have been connected from the very beginning. Art is a means of communication. Long ago, when most people couldn't read, the biblical stories were depicted in paintings, murals, sculptures, music.. any kind of art . Apart from a means of communication, art is also used to honour and worship God and to beautify the places where we worship Him.
In our church we are happy to show a couple of interesting and beautiful pieces of art by Leo Jongenotter.
