Join us this Sunday, June 27 at 11am in-person or on the web as we continue to explore “Creating A Classic.” Through this worship series we will feature great pieces of artwork. This week we highlight Bonds of Friendship, by Shelby McQuilkin. Shelby lives in Denver, Colorado with her family where she says, “My art reflects my journey through life. I'm inspired by the people and events that have shaped me as well as my joys and my tribulations. Each painting is filled with my passion for life, my love of family, and my love of art. Through my life and my work, I want to encourage others to pursue their dreams and live life passionately.” This particular piece by Shelby was inspired by an Anais Nin quote, “Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.”

Join us this Sunday, June 20 at 11am in-person or on the web as we continue to explore “Creating A Classic.” Through this worship series we will feature great pieces of artwork. This week we highlight The Burghers of Calais, by Auguste Rodin. The Burghers of Calais, commemorating an episode during the Hundred Years' War between England and France, is probably the best and certainly the most successful of Rodin's public monuments. Here the characters are portrayed with death imminent for each of them, yet at the end of their story they each would be saved by the English Queen Phillipa.

Looking forward to worshipping with you—and making music with Virginia!

This week longtime Northaven member Virginia Dupuy leads us in song. Outside of leading our some congregational favorites like, “Abide with Me,” and “Great is Thy Faithfulness,” Ms. Dupuy will also perform the beloved “Little Lamb, Who Made Thee,” by Lee Hoiby. Hoiby, who studied with Samuel Barber, is often considered a “neo-romantic” American composer who “has a gift for length, I would say: The songs are neither too long nor too short. The pianist Earl Wild once said, “Music ought to say what it has to say, and get off the stage.” Hoiby understands that. In his songs, there is typically a climax, or some release. And there is what I’ve called “Hoiby flying music”: The singer soars on long, high notes, and the pianist runs wild underneath. Don’t miss this opportunity to worship with us and be led by the talented Virginia Dupuy.

Join us this Sunday, June 13 at 11am in-person or on the web as we continue to explore “Creating A Classic.” Through this worship series we will feature great pieces of artwork. This week we highlight “Moses and the Burning Bush” by Marc Chagall. Expressing one of the most important scenes in the bible where Moses is instructed by an angel from God that God is sending him to the Pharaoh in order to bring the Israelites out of Egypt, Chagall The Burning Bush from the Bible Series, 1958 is full of soft and active line work. Moses possesses a quizzical expression that denotes both a longingness and humbleness, with a devotion to serve.
Created in 1958, this Etching with hand-applied watercolor is hand signed by Marc Chagall (Vitebsk, 1887 – Saint-Paul, 1985) in pencil 'M. Ch.' in the lower right margin.

This week our very own Larry McCain brings us two versions of the classic “Go Down, Moses.” The first version is by Fela Sowande (1905-1987), a prominent 20th Century African-American composer. He was one of the first to bring African influences (Nigeria—the Yoruba tribe) to Western Classical music. Sowande’s arrangement of “Go Down, Moses” is a tone poem—an expressive, dramatic piece which alternates in mood from brooding/mysterious to energetic/powerful, telling in musical language the story of Israel’s captivity and Moses’ courage in speaking truth to Pharoah. The second version, featured as the closing voluntary is a jazzy, driving and swinging gospel version by well-known pianist and composer Mark Hayes. One might expect to hear this on an old original Hammond B-3 organ with a Leslie speaker, but our Northaven pipe organ should do it justice!

Don’t miss your opportunity to hear these two wonderful pieces on Sunday morning at 11am, live or online.

dallasvoice featured Northaven's Pride Parade...

"Northaven Church held its second Pride parade through its parking lots and down a block of Preston Road. A number of people from the neighborhood joined in just because they thought it was wonderful a parade was taking place in that area of North Dallas. The Rev. Ann Willet led the parade in a red convertible.

Serious planning? Nope. Just lots of people getting together having lots of fun and expressing Pride."

Join us this Sunday, June 6th at 11am in-person or on the web as we begin to explore “Creating A Classic.” Through this worship series we will feature great pieces of artwork. This week we highlight “The Broken Five,” by Rashid Johnson along with other great works of art. Rashid Johnson’s work draws on a wide range of research topics in art history, individual and shared cultural identity, personal narratives, and materiality. His work often includes a variety of materials rich in symbolism and personal history. The Broken Five mosaic is the artist’s first public work. The mosaic is made from handmade ceramics, wood, brass, oyster shells, spray paint, wax, soap, and mirrors. Ian Alteveer, a curator of modern and contemporary art at the Met, said, “It is a kind of kaleidoscopic vision that incorporates so much of [Johnson’s] practice today—something that is a painting and a sculpture all at once. The Broken Five is a wall relief that carries with it all this weight of history in his work but also speaks to the emergence over the past six years of these ‘anxious’ and ‘broken’ figures in the practice.” The work as a whole also addresses how the world bears witness to issues of racial justice, police violence, environmental crises, and other socio-political concerns.
