  1. Stand in Prayer with Metropolitan AME Congregation

    Community Updates

    Dearly Beloved,

    Tomorrow night, Wednesday, June 24, at 7:00 p.m. there will be a city-wide prayer meeting at the Metropolitan AME church located at 1101 East 10th Street.

    Along with several other pastors in the city, I will be helping to lead concerted prayers for the unity of our city in support of the African Methodist Episcopal congregation in Charleston that suffered violence a week ago when nine people were gunned down during a prayer gathering.

    Would you please consider altering your plans at this late hour and join us?

  3. Tonight, Friday, January 12th at 7:00 PM – the Audrey Lopata Illustrated Gospel of John Gallery Exhibit and Reception

    Community Updates

    Audrey’s work is amazing. Her illustration of the Word being made flesh as the Holy Spirit overshadows Mary is wonder personified.

    For the past 80 some odd days, our illumining artist, Audrey Lopata, has undertaken illustrating the Gospel of John.

    Come tonight from 7-9:00 PM as Audrey hosts an exclusive gallery-style exhibit at Hope. As she puts it, “For the opening ceremonies I will probably say a few words on what possessed me to do such a thing, and reflect on the experience, and then faint, cause, ya know…public speaking :/”

    “The evening is expected to be a rare intersection of our broader community life, worship, art, and joy in the Holy Spirit for all persons alike. Other inducements for attendance include a magazine/booklet with the complete collection of illustrations for perusal and possible purchase,” says Kevin Daniel, HopeArts’ intern.

    And, of course, receptions always have food so come mill about and discuss!
