Bulletin Cover Blues – Don Silva, RIP

August 29, 2008

On the inside of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s box set there is a quote from Jimmie Vaughan.  He says, “The world misses his music, but I miss my brother.”

This morning it is with a heavy heart that I report the loss of my favorite source of worship graphics, Don Silva of SundayGraphx.  As a graphic artist he just got it.  His powerpoint backgrounds integrate the colors of the liturgical season, art appropriate to the lectionary reading, and non-busy space for text.  His bulletin covers (always in greyscale, great for those of us who use photocopiers!) were always perfect.

The ministry he provided through his blog was a wonderful testimony, a grand use of God-given talent that gave us a glimpse of the Kingdom of God in our midst.

Don died August 27, 2008 due to complications from severe pneumonia.

I miss his art.  But there’s a family, a congregation, and a circle of friends who really miss Don.  My prayers go out to them.
