Eighty artists entered nearly 200 pieces for consideration for the 36th annual Prairie Art Exhibition, what Juror Claudia True calls “a true cultural gem in central Kansas.” True chose 126 pieces, representing 61 artists, to be included in the exhibition. “Sterling should be proud to offer this quality and variety of art to its community,” said True.
Dr. Craig Smith, chair of the Theology and Ministry Department at Sterling College, continues to explore a Scriptural passage, Matthew 5:43-48, that has been of particular interest to him since he wrote "At the Cross: At the Crossroads," published in 2006 with OMF Lit. He has recently written "Loving Our Enemies: A Divine Task," a shorter piece which is also based on the Matthew 5 passage. This article will appear in the September/October issue of "Preaching" and is one of four articles by Dr. Smith that will be published this year.
