Illusion of Autonomy Cookie Reception

April 7 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

We hope you will join us for a cookie reception on Sunday morning April 7 to launch the Illusion of Autonomy art exhibit.

Stop by during the morning to browse the works by our amazing artists and enjoy a cookie.

Exhibit Theme – The Illusion of Autonomy

Jesus prayed, ” I have given them the glory you have given me, so that they may be one as we are one. I am in them and you are in me, so that they may be made completely one, that the world may know you have sent me and have loved them as you have loved me” (John 17:22–23).

Western individualism…a churchless, deconstructed, private faith…the misconception that anyone can pull themselves up by their own bootstraps…these cultural defaults—and so many more—depend on the illusions of autonomy and self-primacy, illusions that began with the temptation of the forbidden fruit in the garden.

We are called to participate in a life of diverse unity with the triune Godhead, serving and loving one another. We embrace the good life not through self-serving solitude or protectionism but through sacrificial relationship and community. We long for a world with kindness, security, and flourishing. But first we must let go of the idolatry of self.
