In late 2011, Roger and Davin began a
unique collaboration to use real-time art
creation as part of the Sunday morning
sermon. The combination of sermons and
paintings of the ensuing Covenant series
proved to engage our brains in more ways
than a sermon alone. As a congregation,
we witnessed the artistic process unfold
in concert with the story, deepening our
understanding of the gravity or significance.
Live in front of our eyes: paint dripping down
the canvas. The squishy sound of globs of
paint hitting the surface of the painting. The
human form covered with black. Seeing
hidden parts appear as protective coverings
were peeled off. More than mere illustration
of a concept, the artistic process gives action
and passion to events that happened long
ago, broadening our definition of worship.
