Convocation Pictures and Stunning Art!

this morning was The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology’s annual convocation service.  it was beautiful! as usual.  we were blessed to have a stunning art show on display at St. Mark’s during our event.  the art is by a Russian-Swedish abstract expressionist artist named Ludmila Padlowska.  you can see more of her work here.

above: our kick-ass faculty!

above: some of my favorite pieces from Ludmila Padlowska’s “Icons in Transformation” show that is on display at St. Mark’s through the middle of October!  go see it.  the blue & gold pieces were incredible in person.

above: the picnic following convocation.  we had a massive line of people and hardly could keep hamburgers & hotdogs in stock.  also, a portrait of master griller p. steinke.  i’m not sure anybody really knows how much this man does behind the scenes.  including baptizing our hamburgers with cheese and spices like a champ, while sporting the most awesome apron.
