Windows and Mirrors

If you are in the Washington D.C. area I highly recommend you visit the Windows and Mirrors exhibit at First Church UCC’s amazing new downtown building.

The exhibit consists of 45 large murals that depict civilian casualties and reaction to the war in Afghanistan. Artists from around the world including, most powerfully, Afghan children, submitted works contained in this traveling exhibit.

It’s really wonderful to see faith communities encouraging this discussion through visual expression. There are often times when words and discussion fail, but taking a look at these images there is no doubt that visual communications are a way forward.

The exhibit is co-sponsored by the American Friends Service Committee, Church of the Brethren, Friends Committee on National Legislation, Mennonite Central Committee US Washington Oce, National Council of Churches, Pax Christi USA, SOJOURNERS, Split This Rock United Church of Christ, and the United Methodist General Board of Church and Society.
