LINCOLN (SNR) - Artist Mary Catherine Unrein will be the speaker for Magnificat of Lincoln’s summer prayer meal Aug. 1 at 9:30 a.m. in Hillcrest Country Club, 9401 East O St., Lincoln.
Unrein said her art is connected with her faith.
“My business is called Joshua’s Stone,” she said, “because it is work of prayer from a mother asking for intercession for her children. Joshua 24 speaks of the Israelites promising Joshua they would stay with Yahweh.
“I felt I was commissioned by God himself to share this message of salvation for my family,” she continued. “Doing this work keeps me connected to my prayer for my family and the mercy of God.”
Unrein was selected to participate as one of the artists at the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia this September.
Her testimony Aug. 1 will describe how a friend gave her a set of tapes to a “Life In the Spirit” seminar by a Catholic evangelist. She said the touch of God’s Life within her “rekindled her hope” and began to give her a new peace. She found a charismatic prayer group that became her “port in the storm.”
To hear the testimony and witness of this wife, mother, daughter, and artist who uses her gift to evangelize for Christ, participants must provide pre-paid registrations by July 27. The cost is $20 (student price is $10). Registrations payable to Magnificat may be mailed to Tina Colgan, 521 N. 56 St., Lincoln, NE, 68504.
