Our Buddy in Brasil and Atlanta, Luiz Coelho, has this thang happening to help him get to Lambeth where he will serve as a steward. Padre Mickey's Dance Party invites you to support Luiz in this endeavor.

Dear friends in Christ,

I would like to invite you all to visit my new blog/visual lectionary/fundraising effort Eikon

As some of you already know, I have been chosen to be a steward at the upcoming Lambeth conference, representing the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil.  For the last few years, I have been discerning a call to the religious life which involves the use of visual arts as a means for healing and reconciliation. Currently, I am pursuing a dual degree both in Painting (at the Savannah College of Art and Design) and in Theology (through the long-distance program of the Seminário Teológico Egmont Machado Krischke).

During the Lambeth Conference, I will be producing a series of pieces (paintings, drawings, photographs, collages, etc.) based on the "Signs on the Way" Bible studies series, which is a special series of studies for the Conference. Those images will be posted on such blog, as a visual devotional. The blog is also a fundraising effort.  Half of the price of each piece will be redirected to the Archdeaconry of Western Rio, which comprises 5 churches and is located in the poorest area of the city.

If you find it a good idea, please help me by spreading the word and talking about this initiative with your friends.

Thank you very much.  Blessings in Christ!

Luiz Coelho
