Ebenezer/herchurch Lutheran (herchurch) refers to the Divine Presence through many names and metaphors. More than 50,000 years ago the sacred one was called mother. Breaking recent tradtion from male diety, this mural aims to herald the return of the feminine divine in modern Christian, interfaith and feminist spirituality.
Please support celebrating goddess imagery on herchurch - a purple Lutheran Church -because for many God/ess is a holy parent, not just a male parent. As well she is a lover, friend, sustainer, birther, Wisdom and life giver. This is not another image celebrating patriarchy, this mural honors the feminine divine.
Renowned artist Sybil Erden is donating her time and vision to produce a painting that will be 16 feet by 64 feet, rising above San Francisco's busy Portola Drive! Attached via panels to the East face of the purple herchurch tower, this mural promises to be a focal point in the world famous San Francisco mural collection.
The mural will consist of 32 panels (4x8 feet each). So if each individual panel
were purchased as a separate painting for its gallery value (of some $10,000) we are talking about a gift from the artist in terms of hundreds of hours and creative value of at least $320,000. But to create this masterpiece, all we need to raise is $35,000 to cover basic supplies and expenses. We are raising money for the painting/creation supplies, transportation and installation.
The dream is to share the beauty to all who pass and prophetically envision our mission of rebirthing the divine feminine in ourselves, the church and the world.
Sybil has now produced detailed scale drawings and has begun
the undercoating on some of the panels. Ten mural panels will be completed and transported to herchurch and displayed at the November 2-4 herconference. We need your support to make this vision a reality.

A recent viewer was brought to tears when ecountering the divine feminine through these portraits of MotherGod, the Black Madonna, Christ-Sophia and Goddess' transforming chakras in each of us. Let your heart be so moved!
