ALPHA OMEGA ARTS

Mark Wallinger’s life-sized sculpture of Christ, "Ecce Homo," took to the road in the UK, this spring, and Alpha Omega Arts is taking to the road this summer. While we're not headed to the UK, you are invited to join us on three road trips to Chicago, IL (June 24), Cleveland, OH (July 15), and Williamstown, KY (August 6), to explore religious fashion, artifacts, and an ark. It's been five years since our last series of summer road trips, and we’re excited to bring them back! Over the last 40-days of Lent when Alpha Omega Arts paused publishing, we spent that time in prayer and planning for the future. We returned on Easter Sunday, April 16, with a new mission statement and new goals. We also agreed that these road trips are one of the most enjoyable ways to share this passion with other artists and collectors. So, mark your calendars, and prepare to take to the road. Yes, Lent is over, and we're back!

Today's Prayer: Heavenly Father, Thank you for the sacrifice of your son. Thank you for the period of Lent to remind us of the importance of sacrifice. Thank you for renewing our spirits, and for a new mission and new goals for the years ahead.

Got it! I've got all the roadtrip dates on my calendar except for July 15. I'll be in Atlanta then.
