Momentary. Lent.

Worship for the first Sunday in Lent was on Saturday evening at Trinity Episcopal, Bentonville. That allowed Sunday to be a day to worship with eyes open to the day.

We started the day at a new branch of Crystal Bridges, The Momentary, created from a repurposed Kraft cheese factory. In this expansive space, the State of the Art 2020 exhibit continued.

Viewing art is a type of prayer for me. The art in this exhibit had come forth from the depths of the artists’ spirits. Nearly all pieces were created in the past three years in response to the events each artist experienced in the new normal of our country. Walking from piece to piece, standing silently with each, was a Great Litany.

O God, Creator of heaven and earth,
Have mercy upon us.
O God the Son, Redeemer of the world,
Have mercy upon us.
O God, the Holy Spirit, Sanctifier of the faithful,
Have mercy upon us.
O holy, blessed, and glorious Trinity, one God,
Have mercy upon us.
O Christ hear us.
O Christ hear us.
