The Seven Sacraments in Pictures: Art by Ruth Meharg

May 14, 2015

I first learned about artist Ruth Meharg when Rachel Held Evans posted some of Meharg’s work on her blog.

Meharg’s series “Searching for Sacraments” is based on Evans’s new book.  Meharg writes:

“These images are my thoughts, my revelations and my questionings during my month of exploring the sacraments.  They are my journey with the sacraments, and in many ways with the church as a whole. And, following in Jesus’ parable telling footsteps, I’m telling my story through a bit of symbolism. Birds.”

View the images and read what she writes about each of them on her blog.

Lē Weaver identifies as a non-binary writer, musician, and feminist spiritual seeker. Their work draws attention to: the ongoing trauma experienced by women and LGBTQIA people in this “Christian” society; Christ/Sophia’s desire that each of us move deeper into our own practice of non-violence; and the desperate need to move away from an androcentric conception of God.
