Imperial Russian Faberge Eggs

Saturday, February 27, 11am

eggMarina Forbes will lead a public discussion on the life and remarkable work of Russian master jeweler and artist, Peter Carl Fabergé. The program will feature a spectacular photo-tour of Fabergé collections at the Constantine Palace in St. Petersburg and from major museums and private collectors around the world. Emphasis is on the important role of egg painting in Russian culture and on the unique development of this major Russian art form from a traditional craft to the level of exquisite fine art under the patronage of the tsars. The fascinating history of these eggs and their role in the dramatic events of the last decades of Romanov rule in Russia and in the years following the Bolshevik Revolution will also be discussed.

This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.

Lent 2016: Growing a Rule of Life

Wednesday Nights in Lent (Feb. 17, Feb. 24, Mar. 2, Mar. 9, Mar. 16)
Led by deacon intern Pam McDonald

Watch an introductory video here!

In our 24/7 worlds, our lives frequently feel out of balance. We are torn from one perceived obligation to another, leaving little time to nurture ourselves. How can we listen to God’s guiding voice to be the full person we are meant to be? How do we turn the promises of our Baptismal Covenant into a way of life that serves God while nurturing our soul?

Join us for five Wednesdays to restructure your time and to build new relationship with God, ourselves, and with others, as we seek and serve Christ in all persons.
