Ichabod explores the Age of Apostasy, predicted in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, with an emphasis on UOJ, Church Growth, and Emergent Church heresies. The antidote to these poisons is trusting the efficacious Word in the Means of Grace. John 16:8. Most readers are WELS, LCMS, ELS, or ELCA. This blog also covers the Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodoxy, and the mainline denominations.
The Glory Has Departed
Lutheran book boxes sent to three African seminaries -
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4
View the 3 minute slideshow of “Paint us into Being” the Goddess Mural at herchurch by artist Sybil Erden, original music by Alison Newvine and Dionne Kohler.
We know that visual art can bring about liberation and reform. It can also bring healing and peace to our souls.
The Goddess mural will rise 64 feet high with four basic symbolic representations of the divine feminine: The Earth Mother, the Black Madonna, the Christ-Sophia, and an androgynous Kali-Kundalini figure whose chakras merge with the phases of the moon and the universe. They will be surrounded by colorful and playful animals, birds, plants and earth’s elements. The mural will be held in place by the purple church.
This mural will be attached, via 32 panels, to the 64 foot high tower of herchurch in San Francisco. Visionary Artist Sybil Erden has freely offered three years of her time to create a magnificent mural that heralds the return of the divine feminine.
The only thing that we need to do is raise the money for the paint, supplies, staging area materials, transportation, and installation of this beautiful work. Do not miss your opportunity to be at ground zero for the unfolding of one of the most exciting projects of the century which will help usher in a new age – her time has come!
Destined to be a San Francisco landmark the Goddess Mural will be a visual sign of hope, beauty and the possibility of unfolding justice.
Please join us in raising that $40,000 needed for the assembly and installation of the Goddess Mural. In so doing we give thanks to Artist Sybil Erden. Her work, valued at over half-a-million dollars, will honor the Goddess within and around us.
It is time for this kind of liberation and reform, healing and beauty to grace our city and world.
The first 10 panels (upper portion) of the mural have arrived and are displayed in the herchurch fellowship hall. Come by and see them as you are able.
Those making contributions to the Goddess Mural will become a part of the permanent records, along with the artist and herchurch SF, as being responsible for this everlasting landmark art in tribute to the Goddess.
