This is our first in an ongoing series that pairs art from local artists with their reflections on topics of spirituality and faith. Come by St. Faith’s Anglican Church to experience the artist’s work Tuesday-Friday from 9:30 to 4pm or on Sundays.
There is something electric about being in community spaces, public spaces and gathering places when they are active. And there is something quietly contemplative about being in these spaces during a hushed moment of solitude. To me, they are not truly silent or empty when I have them to myself in these moments. The spaces still hum a little bit with the impressions and footsteps left by other people. They still faintly hold the energy.
As I stand in the fresh, rain scented breeze and embrace the solitude and contemplate the silence, I do not feel lonely or alone.
