Adult Sunday School Speaker Series

May 26: Henry Goodspeed – Art and Spirituality, Modern day Christian and/or Social Witness through art. There are many instances where artists communicate with prophetic like voices [not foretelling but “forthtelling”, standing up for justice regardless of the consequences] or illuminating Christian truths with a force that cannot be matched with mere words.
