“Another Kind of Love”
The problem with the word “love” is that it seems too small. The world’s romantic definition, while valid, seems to pale in comparison to the bigger love that Jesus taught and modeled in the Bible. The kind that loves enemies, that is patient and kind and other-centered, that cares for the poor and the marginalized. It is another kind of love altogether.
On October 6, we’ll be exploring “Another Kind of Love” through a variety of art forms in a once-a-year event we call Mosaic: A Night With The Arts. Mosaic is a special evening where we gather the best of what we do—music, drama, dance, literary arts, visual arts, and other artistic expressions from the people of Oak Hills. This year, our theme is “Another Kind of Love,” and we will offer many types of the arts in this vein, including lyrical and interpretive dances, a short story, photographic journalism, performance art, some edgy drama, and original music, from improvisational jazz to rock. Mosaic will be on Saturday evening, October 6, 2012, beginning at 6:30 PM for the Art Gallery reception and 7:00 PM for the program.
This year, we are pleased to present this as a benefit for one of our long-time ministry partners, the Twin Lakes Food Bank, a local organization which feeds thousands of people in the Folsom and surrounding areas. Admission is free, but we encourage everyone to bring non-perishable food items to replenish the stores at the Food Bank for this fall (you can also give money if you’d like too!) Free childcare is also provided for children third grade and below, but please RSVP to email@example.com to confirm your children prior to that evening.
If you’ve been around Oak Hills awhile, you realize that the arts are an essential and normative expression of our faith. From our Intersections Conference to Arts Camp, from our Art & Soul Gallery in the lobby to our Sunday morning worship, the arts plays a big role in our church. This is a great opportunity to invite your friends and neighbors to a thought-provoking, artistically moving event, so we hope to see you all there!
