Faith Mennonite Church
The watercolor art piece she created was inspired by this prayer, “Creator God, in your time you created all things and wove into their fabric a yearning for you.” You will find woven into her art the sacred, the feminine, and love for the earth.
Covenant Mennonite Fellowship
He made a liturgical stole titled Handen Verlangen, Dutch for Yearning Hands. The imagery for the stole is based on Dutch engraver Jan Luyken’s etching, Dirk Willems 1685. He used traditional quilt piecing techniques combined with digital printing.
First Mennonite Bluffton
Anita is retirement age but keeps working in her studio because she believes an artist never retires.
Anita used the hymn “Healer of our every ill” in a recent series on dementia. Her exploration of yearning in that context was a profound experience for her. So for this project she decided to revisit the hymn using music symbols.
Rachel Horst Lehman
First Mennonite Urbana
Rachel lives with her husband David, and three sons Levi (4), Ezra (2), & Jonas (2 weeks). She spends most of her time with the boys, and is also a part-time house painter. While Rachel has been an artist/crafter all her life, she chose to preserve it as a hobby and pursued Social Work instead of Art for her degree at Goshen College, Indiana.
Rachel’s project is a textile piece on the theme of Yearning for Social Justice. It is a visual representation of the indigenous groups who tended the land where our CDC West congregations worship today. Her hope is that the piece might inspire us to discover a more complete history of the resources we’ve inherited, live more gently on the land, and start important and difficult conversations with our neighbors about how to honor the native people in our own communities.
