Curator's Statement:
In this exhibition, the third in our Baptismal Covenant series, artists were invited to respond to these lines from the covenant:


“Will you strive for justice and peace among all people,
and respect the dignity of every human being?
I will, with God’s help.”


The resulting exhibition articulates the inherent tension between care for ourselves, our own families and communities, and a respectful concern for the broader community of faiths, cultures, and the environment. Each image calls us to a broader world view, inviting us to see ourselves as part of a larger whole and to act upon that understanding.


We invite you to sit with these images and see what response awakens within you.
