tiny rainbow chaliceSunday, June 17th, 5 PM -- FAITH + WORKS: Listening to Statues of Women -- Darcy Hall

In the past few years scholars, municipal governments and urban citizen-strollers have begun to question the historic connections, personal actions and values of statues of the "Great Men" on our streets and in our public parks. But what about statues of women? Where are they? Who are they? And why are they naked or barely dressed? Long time church member Darcy Hall will give a talk on the history, background and significance of statues of women in New York, women of might and power--who never actually existed but might have something to say to us in 2018.

This will be followed by the Annual Congregational Meeting at 6 PM in the Parish Hall.
