Our thanks to htis year's Lenten Artist Sharon Kessinger. Since arriving in Utah, Sharon taught art for 16 years in middle and upper schools at The Waterford School in Sandy. She then taught 4 year old pre-school at Rowland Hall for 6 years, retiring this past June. The Lent panels she is painting for Mt. Tabor's sanctuary represent the spirit of rebirth and renewal. The first panel depicts the seed of birth or re-creation, the second the awakening or emerging growth, and the last the tree of life. The small details of the tree represent the blessings we receive and the gifts we give to others. The panels are greatly inspired by the work of Gustav Klimt, a 19th century Austrian artist, who is one of her favorites.
The Roundtable will meet Monday, March 18th at 11:30am in Room 208 (please note the temporary change) of the Research Administration Bldg at the University of Utah.
Our guest speaker is Richard Harvey, a grad student at the U whose research interests include Artificial General Intelligence. He will present "An Introduction to Christian Transhumanism" and everyone is invited.

The journey of making our 2019 ministry intiatives began October 14. Our Stewardship for All Seasons team is Jean Stephenson, Bruce Palenski, Mallory deForest, Stephanie Wilson and Pr. David. In October we learned more about the potenial of a Mount Tabor App and the VOA Homeless Youth Resource Center. A hygiene kit service project was completed on Sunday October 21 for Homeless Youth Resource Center. Maud's Cafe, an 8-12 week employment training program for the youth at the Center, catered our fellowship after worship that day. And on Sunday November 11th, we were invited to share our Statements of Intent to express our generosity. Thank you Tabor for helping our congregation find these new ways to live God's love for others!
During the season of Lent beginning March 13:
