Amazing Scissorcuts

August 2, 2020

Jim’s amazing scissorcuts will be on display and for sale at the Borland Gallery in Silverton, Oregon, throughout the month of September, IF the Silverton Arts Association allows the gallery to be open to the public. During the pandemic, Jim has done dozens of new scissorcuts, some of which can be seen below and by clicking on the Scissorcut tab above.

Opening night for the showing will be Friday, September 4th, 5 – 9 pm. You are urged to wear a mask. We may have to limit the number of visitors inside the gallery at any one time. We hope to be open each Friday 5-9 pm and on Saturdays and Sundays, noon to 5 pm.

You are invited to click on any of Jim’s novels on the sidebar to the right. Fascinating characters based on his experience as a pastor and chaplain.

Launching Ads for Terror at Trinity

June 8, 2020

With all the demonstrations and destruction going on in our cities I thought it might be time to revive interest in my novel Terror at Trinity. Google ads will bring searchers here to learn more about the two kinds of terror: that caused by oneself, the terror of guilt and shame, and terror caused by a threat from someone else. Pastor Paul Walker must deal with the effects of a murder in his church building. The police investigation is halting at best. The members are upset and afraid. The murderer is finally caught. A few years later, a group of terrorists threaten to blow up the church on a Sunday morning, killing worshipers, unless their demands are met. To order Terror at Trinity, click on

My second project this summer is preparing for an art show in Silverton. AMAZING SCISSORCUTS by Jim Bornzin will be on display at the Borland Gallery in the city park, September 4 – 27. During the pandemic shut-in I have been cutting like crazy. New works will be for sale, along with books of poetry, reflections, short stories, and novels. Your help with the show, and/or your attendance will be greatly appreciated.
