At our Gathering this February, we will view the award-winning short film Abstraction, and hear from its subject, Dianne Collard, Director of ArtsCharlotte and author of I Choose to Forgive. Our conversation will center around the question of how art can play a role in the journey of forgiveness and reconciliation. We can’t wait to see where this conversation takes us as we continue to seek to nurture the soul of our city through the arts.
No matter our vocation: whether we’re visual artists, writers, actors or directors, church leaders, business people, students or parents, we are all called to forgive. Join us as we explore how the arts can play a role in that journey.
Charlotte premier of ABSTRACTION and book-signing for "I Choose to Forgive" will be held at the prestigious Anne Neilson Fine Arts Gallery in Charlotte, NC.
The screening of the film will be held at 7:00 p.m.
Arts+Europe will lead the Arts Track of the Hope for Europe Conference (European Evangelical Alliance)
I will be the speaking at the student chapel; at the dedication of the new Chapel; interviewed on the Biola Hour radio program; and there will be a screening of Abstraction, followed by a panel discussion, sponsored by the Center for Christianity, Culture and the Arts.
Glenn and I will present a seminar which will include the topics of "Investing in Chaos," "Beauty from Brokenness," "Leaving a Legacy (men only)," "A Woman's Calling (women only)," and "Choosing to Forgive." Our film, Abstraction, will be screened on Saturday. Call 805 733 3545 for more information.

I will give a very personal message entitled, "Crushed to Produce Beauty." Using examples from various art forms, the truth that the Master Artist, God, is working in us to produce His beauty in our lives, even in very difficult circumstances.
