    The Jane Faner Sweers Faith Foundation Series presents Transfiguration 2015 Retreat

    Presented by at First Presbyterian Church

    February 14, 2015


    The Jane Faner Sweers Faith Foundation Series presents Transfiguration 2015 Retreat

    Rev. Joseph Novak, Presbyterian pastor and graphic designer, will lead the retreat. Novak will help participants understand the nature of aesthetics and art-making within the Christian tradition, and will focus especially on the historical role that symbols have played in conveying transcendent themes. By examining historic and contemporary symbols, participants will gain an understanding of the often unnoticed power that symbols have in shaping our understanding of God. Additionally, participants will have an opportunity to practice making various types of physical art in a guided afternoon workshop. You do not have to be an artist to practice making art; opportunities for all experience levels will be provided. Registration is at 8:30am with lunch provided by Chef Besh. Lunch $10. This event is sponsored by the Jane Faner Sweers Faith Foundation Series established for the purpose of providing a dynamic Christian witness to the people of the First Presbyterian Church of Flint and the surrounding communities. Both through Christian speakers and representatives of the arts, the Faith Foundation Series strives to make persons more aware of the incarnate love of Jesus Christ and the blessings of the walk of faith. In months and years to come this series will be a catalyst for bringing a continuing message of hope to this community and inspiration to the people of God.
