One Sorry Exhibit

David Tiesma's avatar David Tiesma

Christianity. The word evokes a lot of emotion. Love it or hate it, all have to acknowledge that it is a force in this world, and especially in this country. I am a Christian. I have even been a pastor twice. Most of my life I have gone to church and even now I am heavily involved at a local church. Those who identify themselves as believers (the church) have done much good over the last couple thousand years. Unfortunately, the church has also done a huge amount of damage. It's time we believers apologized for this. My exhibit is going to resemble a confession booth. On the outside walls of the exhibit there will be painted many of the different ways the church has messed up, both ancient and current. On the inside I am hoping to have someone inside as much as I can, ready to apologize (to anyone who wants one) for what has happened to them or a loved one at the hands of believers. When someone is not there, a video will be running of many people doing the same thing.
