“Not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit alone . . .” Biblical tradition holds a prophetic calling to young and old, able and infirm, cursed and blessed to be working in the Spirit together–conservative to contemporary, spanning the age gamut in religious worship. The partners of LOGOS GUILDWORKS have their history in collaboration, shared resources and participation in ethics and theology, liturgy, sculpture and music rooted in solid resources and wisdom of artists, educators and architects, rabbis and cantors, chaplains and pastors with ecumenical ground in faith-informing artworks. Through LOGOS GUILDWORKS and our collaborations with other ministries and partners these are given modern forms, offering vibrant conversations bearing rich witness to God.
We'll continue to bring LOGOS GUILDWORKS MINISTRIES online these next few months; as we move and connect through dialogues, come! interact via our youTube channel with the different dimensions and planes of engagement in faith-formation and pastoral care–our language and lexicon of God's word and work in the world as artistic voicing of the Gospel. Please journey patiently with us. And Godspeed.

HOLY HILL PROJECT 8|10 Pieces in Abrahamic Tradition Andover Newton Seminary + Pacific School of Religion GTU | Center Jewish Studies | New College Berkeley
God, who may abide in your tabernacle? Who may dwell on Your holy hill? Psalm 15: 1-2
The HOLY HILL PROJECT hopes to partner academic and artistic resources from the Graduate Theological Union's Pacific School of Religion, New College Berkeley and CJS, (on Holy Hill) in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, with Andover Newton Seminary's CIRCLE, and 'Journey's on the Hill' interfaith programs, creating a bridge in innovative theological work taking place in both distinguished Seminary consortia on East and West coasts. Our cross-paneled digital-to-laminate aluminum artwork series combines the Beatitudes in the Sermon on the Mount (Christianity) and the words of Jeremiah 31:3 "I have loved you with an everlasting love, and I draw you to me with lovingkindness."(Judaism's Hebrew Bible) in an inter-religious, reflective, multi-panel/muti-sensory design installation.The HOLY HILL PROJECT envisions multi-paneled, museum-modern graphical scriptural sculpture entitled Holy Hill, An Everlasting Love installed in the two primary host venues of Andover Newton Theological School and Pacific School of Religion and/or the Graduate Theological Union library, or another arts ministry venue. Potential sponsors and venues for display include currently slated Christ Church, Santa Fe (New Mexico) and will embrace key lay and ecclesial destinations between Andover Newton Seminary in Massachusetts, and the GTU. Panels will be constructed in an exhibition-ready format, prepared for installation and ready for portability between sites. The HOLY HILL PROJECT connects Scripture to the places people seek communion with God and community with each other–encouraging God’s word, entering hearts where people love art and resonate with words of faith. Currently LOGOS GUILDWORKS is working with dynamic interfaith organizations like Faith House Manhattan, and we also anticipate working with CIRCLE and Journeys on the Hill, the interfaith|inter-religious dialogue programs at Andover Newton Theological School and Hebrew College, as well as the Pacific School of Religion, Center for Jewish Studies and New College Berkeley in the GTU, in Berkeley California.
