Scripture as Art

Christian Formation at St. Bernard’s:
the next Zoom session is on October 30, 12 pm

Join us for Scripture as Art at 12 pm via Zoom.   The scripture for this month’s creative response is Luke 19:1-10, Jesus’ encounter with Zacchaeus. This experience is about the process not the product! All are welcome.

Think of ‘art’ in the broadest of terms: collage, poetry, coloring, painting, sculpting, weaving, knitting, song… and so much more! After worship we’ll gather on our Sunday Zoom link at 11:30 am to share what we’ve created or discovered. You can email a photo to Pastor Beth or just hold it up to camera. Open to all ages. You are welcome to invite family and friends to participate.


Luke 19:1-10, Jesus’ encounter with Zacchaeus

1  Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through it. 

2  A man was there named Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was rich. 

3  Zacchaeus was trying to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was short in stature. 

4  So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree to see him, because Jesus was going to pass that way. 

5  When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today.” 

6  So Zacchaeus hurried down and was happy to welcome Jesus. 

7  All who saw it began to grumble and said, “Jesus has gone to be the guest of one who is a sinner.” 

8  Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord, “Look, half of my possessions, Lord, I will give to the poor; and if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will pay back four times as much.” 

9  Then Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he too is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek out and to save the lost.”

It’s inspired by Luke 24.13-35, the Road to (and from) Emmaus..jpg
