Inspire!

Rev. Dr. E. Scott Jones
September 18 2018

“Art, like prayer, draws us away from the self towards an appreciation of that which is good. In this way, great art makes one a better person.”–Anil Gomes

Inspire! is our fall worship theme.

This series has been developed in collaboration with the Joslyn Art Museum.  Each week a piece of art from the Joslyn’s collection will inspire our worship.

Enjoyment of art can be a spiritual exercise, helping to draw us closer to God and make us a better person.
