In The Beauty of Holiness: A Lenten program of Faith and the Arts

Multiple Presenters — Standing on Holy Ground: The art of St. John’s

Have you ever wondered what’s up with the dancing Jesus above the altar? Or why we have those painted reliefs? Or why the church was built the way it was? This is your chance to bring all of your questions about the physical space of St. John’s. Led by Nathan Bourne, Meg Harper, and a number of other experts, we’ll walk through and “read the space” of St. John’s, reflecting on it and our liturgy as a work of art.
