Eden to Eternity is an exhibit made up of forty stunning molas collected from various Cuna artisans on the San Blas Islands, just off the coast of Panama.Molas are panels of reversed embroidery meant to be applied to the front and back of Cuna women’s blouses. Each mola in this collection is a beautifully designed interpretation of a biblical story with whimsical treatments and tender insights.These works of art remind us that we are a part of a global church and that artistic worship is as multifaceted as the tribes and tongues that make up the kingdom of God.

What about belief and ethics? Can we even even exist or know anything apart from human relationships?Like Cain, we tend to recoil at the thought that we may be our brother’s guardian, that we may be beholden to those we’re in conflict with or don’t even know, and worse, that we… Read More »
