Out of urgency, this ministry came into being and out of passion it continues to thrive. This ministry has played an integral role in FBCM’s ministry as a whole, especially during the early stages of the pandemic and I’m humbled to be part of it. The tech portion was challenging due to lack of expertise and experience, but we were able to pull through. Thank you to our congregation who graciously embraced, prayed and supported this ministry. A great many thanks to all those who have given of their finances, time and talents to keep MOVAT going from week to week. Special shout out to our wonderful tech volunteers: Dean Eson, Steve Eson, Eufemio Pagan, Tom Tamburello, Jill Lee, Judie Ladd, Victoria McGrath, Sara Bennett, Steve Lynch, Evie Watson, Sandy Lehr, Carol Manning. Your generosity of time and talent has enabled us to reach beyond our walls, delivering a much-needed message of God’s inclusive love to all. Thank you! The Visual Art component of the ministry was another story. It opened a new avenue for me, personally, to explore creatively and experience deeper spirituality in a way. The creative process in doing every art installation, or online cover image, or meditation video, has been a spiritual journey in itself for me. I’m so grateful for the avenue not just to serve, but to hone my creativity, which is also a source of comfort, strength and balance for me. I also wish to acknowledge special thanks to: • Pastor Linda, who has encouraged without pressure from day one, and has given me the freedom to create in any form or media as the Spirit leads. • my partner, Howard Raudenbush, who greatly assists in every art installation. • all those who have shown appreciation of the art, offering their own spiritual insight and epiphanies. • the anonymous donor who generously shouldered the salary deficit when the budget ran out towards the end of 2020, along with all those who have contributed financially to MOVAT. Your offerings have empowered us to be successful beyond what we thought or imagined.
