Bishop William Gregg at St Paul's Anglican in San Miguel Allende gave another insightful sermon, first week in Lent. The first reading was from Genesis.

This archetypal story illustrates the movements of the human heart and mind in a simple…Continue

As a long time member of CIVA I need to ask if anyone knows a place who would want as a donation my art work of Revelation. I had a permanent loan place but suddenly they are asking it to be removed as they are changing their space. I had hoped this was a long term commitment and have not been able to find a place to take it to. It is in Ft. Mill SC in The River Place formerly Jim Bakker's The Barn. If this is the end of the road and I must remove it and place my art in the…Continue

Dear Fellow Iconographers:
“Advent asks us to keep vigil for the Christ who comes to us anew in this season. It invites us to keep our face turned toward the horizon in hope. But Advent asks us also to open our hearts to the Christ who keeps vigil for us, the Christ who stands not on some distant horizon but, instead, is already with us, waiting for us to open our eyes to his presence that stays with us always.
As Advent begins, may you be blessed in your vigil: the one you…Continue
