2016/11/09, 4:30 p.m.: Mission collecting cans – the world’s peoples requests to the crib to a good gift

Church art at first hand!

Art and architecture are consistent witness of Christian life in the world. They reflect the religious coexistence of past centuries, preserving long-forgotten traditions and shape the cultural diversity of our presence. On the way into the modern knowledge of the significance of individual pieces is often lost.The art inventory of the Diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart would like to receive this heritage; call current and seemingly forgotten art objects back into consciousness. Our event series tells of attic finds and church treasures that accompany our daily work. Interested persons are cordially invited.

Already the somewhat cumbersome term “mission collection box” which replaces and neutralized the former name is significant for the changed handling of the people of the mission countries. The Nick figures in their ethnic diversity are banished to the farthest corners of sacristy and church Save. In its place today often keep children from different cultures together a collection box up pleadingly.
