  • From your Associate Minister of Religious Education January 6, 2017

    If you haven’t yet been to “The Rama Epic,” the exhibit about the Ramayana at the Asian Art Museum, do yourself a favor and go before it closes on Jan. 15. Yes, I know it’s a pain to drive all the way up to San Francisco, but there’s a parking garage right across the street — and this exhibit is just about guaranteed to boost your family’s religious literacy.

    If you don’t know the Ramayana very well, this exhibit is a fun introduction. The exhibit introduces you to four main characters from the Ramayana — Rama the hero, Sita the heroine, Hanuman the good monkey god, and Ravana the evil ten-headed demon. The exhibit includes art works, of course — but also videos of dance and puppet performances, and excerpts from the 2008 TV series produced in India. The museum will be offering a Family Fun day on Jan. 15, 10:30-2:30 — you could leave right after Sunday school and make it in plenty of time.

    See you soon,
    Dan Harper
