Hearing the Voice of God – Lenten Art Show

2 - webtitle



I wanted to offer something a bit different for Lent this year. Usually during Lent, if churches put up any kind of artwork, it’s the stations of the cross imagery. I have offered my own interpretation of that in my Stations in the Street show…. which has been very successful.

Maybe it’s because I’m training to be a Spiritual Director, and maybe it’s because of my own prayer practice, but this Lent I wanted to invite communities to practice listening to the voice of God for Lent. Giving up something for Lent, which is a common practice, is really about that…. about trying to remove or add something to help align oneself to the presence of God. Not that that is a tired ole thing… not at all. But I wanted to offer something that was in the same vein… but had a bit different spin to it.

So here is the imagery… and here’s what I wrote about the show….




Hearing always begins with honesty. Which sounds easy enough. But if you’ve ever really tried to be completely honest… well it’s pretty scary. Often we think we need to be something “other” or “something” better to approach God. But this leads us to the opposite of honesty. This is why Jesus says when you pray, go into a closet (I prefer the shower) and pray in secret… because when you’re all alone you’ll be your most honest self. Honest about fears, doubts, skepticism, hopes, goals, dreams, pains, questions, anxieties, desires, loves, etc. This is what prayer is: a conversation about everything. A doorway to hear God’s voice has always been inside you. The key is honesty.


There are tools that can help us get better at this honest conversation: Words and Images. Often we use Words to help give language to that honest conversation. We can also use Imagery to do this as well because we all know a picture can say a thousand words. The key is to understand that these Words and Images are not the content itself. They are excavation tools. They help exhume the real content: the ongoing ever-present conversation between you and the Divine.


When dealing with art imagery, a fine question is “what does this mean?” An even better question is “what is this bringing out of me?” These twelve images are excavation tools to the honest conversation. In this season of Lent, we look to Jesus as our model and guide to this very conversation. All the statements are His… and all imagery is pointing to His invitation into the Kingdom of Heaven. Good digging!

Click here for #2 plus I’ll print, sign, and mail you the show.



How should I print these?

I used Fedex Office to print out the images at 36 inches by 48 inches. I’m told you can do this Staples or any other large format corporate printer.

You want them to print on paper that is used for blueprints. It’s called bond paper. It’s very lightweight and fairly inexpensive.

At Fedex Office, they print in black and white for around 87 cents a square foot. That makes each one of these prints around $9… and you have 12 stations plus the description… so that makes printing out this show a cost of around $120.

You can always print the show smaller if you like. I have formatted all these images to print out at 36”x48” at the largest… and anything smaller is possible.


What if we want to wheat paste this outside? And I’ve never wheat pasted before?

I watched this video of Sheperd Fairey walking through his whole process of putting art up. I found it extremely helpful when wheat pasting myself:

Included in the package is a recipe to make your own wheat paste… but I also found that this was a great product to use.


Can we hang this show inside?

Absolutely. You should make this fit best with whatever is best for your community.


Okay. Best of luck everyone. Let me know how I can help!

Birmingham Show!!!! – We Are Not Troubled Guests


Birmingham! I’m so excited to be putting on a performance of WE ARE NOT TROUBLED GUESTS in your beloved town.

This is my story of what happens when pain in your life (in any form) seemingly destroys how you think everything worked…. and maybe that was the thing you had been asking for all along. It’s fun, poignant, and the best thing you’ll see in awhile. Even better than The Walking Dead season 5.

Watch the video below to see a bit more….

I could use your help getting the word out on this one. Would love it if you sent this page to some friends you want to invite with you to the show!

The show is going to be at a new venue that is just being finished. Excited to kick off the space!

With Us – Advent Art 2016






These are three images I made during the Advent season in 2016. Here’s what I wrote about the images….


I love Christmas. I love the lights. The music (non-stop til the 25th!). I love any reason to party.
But this year it just feels empty. The world has always been chaotic…. but after a divisive and exhausting election, images of innocent carnage in Aleppo, the overwhelming stream of information that mostly tells us that we’re all doomed…. lights, tinsel, and Starbucks cups just don’t seem to matter. The aesthetics of safe shepherds, safe stables, safe and secure stars, angels, wise men, etc…. just don’t make sense.
They don’t make sense in this world on the brink of fear and despair. 

Vulnerability is scary. It’s a risk and it costs.

Everything about the coming of Yahweh in the form of a fragile baby is vulnerable. The powerlessness. The chaos of not having a sanitized place to birth. The shocking biology of it all. I’ve witnessed two births and both brought me to tears. It’s a beautiful experience… but not in any safe way. The water, the blood, the body fluids.

So much comes out when a baby is born. Sometimes the mother poops when a baby is born. Nobody puts that in their baby books.

Jesus was born just like us. In all of goopy humanity. There is something overwhelming sacred this year for me to meditate on that. That he was born of blood… like we are. That he partook in the powerless vulnerability of coming into the world… like we feel. That he was born into the shit…. which we never seem to get out of.

Go Santa. Go presents. Go eggnog. Go all of it.
But for me the magic of Christmas this year is knowing that He’s always been in the shit with us. And still is. And always will be. .

Merry Christmas.


Many of you have asked for the opportunity to purchase these prints. You can click the photo and you will be directed the place where that can happen!!!






“Worship” Defined

Honestly. I went to this horrible church service recently. It was awful. It was awful because it was churchy for church sake. Layers and layers upon activities and statements that didn’t sound like they had anything to with life outside of this building. They only made sense in this particular practice. And my biggest beef is that the word worship has been taken and defined to mean a very particular activity. So I decided to and my two cents in this video…..

And as always…. I made some art about it.

You should get one of these. : )

Lately, I’ve struggled with the symbol of the cross and it’s seemingly irrelevance in our culture currently. Its not that I don’t think it’s important theologically. I just think symbolically in our culture now it’s an ambiguous symbol. It’s ambiguous because of over use.
