RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory Disney-Britton
One of our core tenets is valuing the nontraditional forms of art of the religious imagination. For example, back in 2013, we went to a reading by David Javerbaum of his book, The Last Testament, A Memoir by GOD at the JCC of Indianapolis. After a hilarious reading, he autographed our copy with: "To Adam & Steve, Let thy freak flag fly," and we've been enjoying his tweets from God ever since. This week, a new play based on the book opened on Broadway, and that's why An Act of God (above) featuring Jim Parsons is my NEWS OF WEEK.
