KU: Windows on the Word

Art of the Bible and the Bible as art. Join the KU team as we look at God’s Word through the lens of the creative arts. Taking a different Bible passage each evening, we’ll see how God’s Word has inspired artists and continues to speak through music, poetry and art. Expect live music, art, spoken word, interviews and Bible teaching from artists.

Create: Genesis 1

From Genesis to Revelation, God’s Word is brimming with creativity. Starting with the creativity of God and human making, we’ll see how the creation story offers a mandate for all creativity, not just for professional artists. Join Alastair Gordon, Ruth Naomi Floyd and special guests as they open God’s Word through song, art and words.

Collaborate: Genesis 2 and Exodus 31

There is much that pulls us apart yet in recent years the world has learned to work together as never before with advances in medical science and global communications prompted by the pandemic. We could say this instinct for concurrence comes from the character of God who not only works within His own Godhead but also with creation itself. Looking to God’s collaboration with Adam and the design partners of the tabernacle, this evening will explore the Biblical theme of working together through the arts. With Alastair Gordon, Ruth Naomi Floyd, KU artists in residence, Gardner and Gardner and special guests.

Lament: Psalm 13 and Exodus 32

Despite our efforts to work together there has been much to lament in recent years. With an eye to conflict in Europe and remembering loss through the pandemic we reflect on the Biblical theme of lament. As the Psalmist sang, ‘How long, Oh Lord? Will you forget me forever?’. Join Alastair Gordon, Ruth Naomi Floyd, Kaori Homma and special guests as they explore lament through the eyes of art, music and poetry.

Make New: Revelation 21 and Isaiah 61
