In this time of resilience, each of us finds ourselves somewhere between grieving and joy. The Advent season welcomes God’s grace into our hearts so that we can find healing.

Rev. Woong-Sik (Timothy) Chon is the Pastor of North Westminster Presbyterian Church in Lansing, Michigan. Timothy is a Presbyterian (USA) ordained minister of word and sacrament. He holds a Master of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary, Virginia, and a Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Timothy’s artwork ranges from graphic illustrations to painting Buon Fresco in sacred spaces.  He has taught in both art institutions and seminaries and served the past 25 years as a Liturgical Art Consultant for the Church.   He served for many years as the Director of the Ecumenical Center for Arts and Spirituality at St. Francis Retreat Center in Dewitt, Michigan. As an artist-pastor, Rev. Chon works with faith communities in their united journeys from grief into joy by prayerfully co-creating visual liturgies.

This ecumenical, community wide event is sponsored by the church communities of Bethlehem Lutheran, Cathedral of Saint Andrew, St. Mark’s Episcopal, Westminster Presbyterian, and the Catholic Information Center and Kaufman Interfaith Institute. Join us in person or online. The event is free; pre-registration required. A participant packet will be sent to those participating online if registered by Dec. 1. Financial contributions are requested in support of Artists Creating Together, a non-profit organization that provides art and creative expression programming, which helps to enrich the lives of people with and without disabilities throughout West Michigan.
