Interested artists are encouraged to offer artwork that interprets scripture readings and themes within the Christian year.

We have one page available for an image for each of the following seasons: Advent, Christmas, Lent, Holy Week and Easter.
There will be two pages for the season after Epiphany (which includes the arrival of the Magi, the Baptism of Jesus and the Transfiguration. There will be four pages available for art work in the Season after Pentecost. On these pages we look for images that portray Pentecost, All Saints and the Reign of Christ as well as images particular to stories included in the lectionary readings during this season of growth in discipleship.
The images will be published on an 8½" by 11" landscape page. Images that are landscape in format are most suited to this calendar.
