Campus Ministries will host “Vision/Revision,” March 29-April 2, on the campus of Anderson University. Vision/Revision is a week-long annual opportunity for faculty, staff, and students to express their faith through art of any medium such as drama, music and literature. Artist Jon Mourglia, a lecturer with the Thomas F. Staley Distinguished Scholar program and the Potter’s House Teaching Ministry in Alabama, will be the featured campus guest. Jon's methods vary from humorous skits, Biblical symbols and themes, simple machines and the potter's wheel. Mourglia will also host a ceramics workshop on April 5 from 7-9 p.m.

Mourglia has traveled for over 30 years teaching at churches, ministerial alliance meetings, colleges, prisons, various camps and conferences. He has a powerful method of demonstrating Biblical truths to people. He combines his skill as an artist and potter with his spiritual gift of teaching the Word of God through The Potter's House. Jon uses basic objects and stories to explain spiritual principles, much in the same way Christ used common elements in his parables.

Chapel/convocation at AU will feature Jon Mourglia on March 30 at 10 a.m. in Reardon Auditorium. Students will be able to share their expressions of faith by participating in chapel/convocation at 10 a.m. in Reardon Auditorium on Thursday, April 1. Original work by students in the form of a song, dance, poem, monologue, drama or other forms of art will be presented. Students will also display original art pieces in the Reardon Auditorium throughout the week.

As a part of Vision Revision, a glass blowing demonstration will take place on March 29 from 7-9 p.m.
