In its history, art was crucial in the spiritual education and development of early Christians. Art played a pivotal role in communicating theological interpretations to inspire music, spiritual development and acts of compassion. Gary United Methodist Church in Wheaton, IL, has embraced art as a medium for understanding, dialogue and spiritual growth. Towards that end, we have established the Burning Bush Gallery. The Gallery is located in the "Wesley Center," the white house next to the church at 216 N. Main St., Wheaton, IL.
