For the 2021 Lenten Speaker Series, St. Paul’s is featuring various poets and artists who will reflect on the concept of journey and journeying together during this season of pandemic and political turmoil.

Our first speaker is Public Artist and Muralist Hamilton Glass.

Hamilton Glass’s career as an artist stems from his architecture and design background. Despite working in the architecture field for 7 years, his passion for public art pushed him to start a career as an artist. Public art has always been a big influence and inspiration to Hamilton, because of its power to influence and inspire the surrounding community. With every opportunity Hamilton is given to create, he tries to convey a message that connects his art to the community. Using his background in architecture, he creates images that reference architectural drafting practices, which are represented in the sharp lines, scale, and balance of the piece. The bright colors and unpredictable lines and shapes are used to convey energy and movement in each piece. Hamilton is always looking to use his art as an inspiration and healing tool in the community, as well as being a great example of a working black artist. Website: whosham.com.

HRI-Sponsored – The Emancipation of Evan Walls by Jeffrey Blount

EVAN WALLS IS TERRIFIED by the birth of his first child because he doesn’t want her to suffer the isolation he had as a child. Seeing his torment, his wife, Izzy, prods him to explain. He tells of being a black child growing up in the racially charged 1960s. Inspired to overcome the racism and class status imposed on blacks, he dreams of a life bigger than that lived by most everyone he knows in the small Virginia town of Canaan.

This group will be facilitated by Adrian Luxmoore

Scroll down for link to join gathering…

Stone Soup is an annual micro-fundraiser dinner based on the story of stone soup, in which many people give a little to make a soup that feeds everyone. Each attendee at Stone Soup pays a donation of $15 for a bowl of soup. We also accept donations from those who cannot attend or want to give more. All the donations are pooled together and divided evenly among the three organizations working in our community.

We ask each of the organizations to give a presentation during dinner about a specific project they would fund if given a grant of $500. The goal each year is to raise a total of $1,500.

Stone Soup will be held online through Zoom on Sunday, February 21st at 6:00 p.m. You will be able to pick up your soup to go from St. Paul’s on Sunday, February 21st between 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. We will also be delivering to Westminster Canterbury and Imperial Plaza.

This year, the three organizations are recipients of grants from the St. Paul’s Covid-19 Relief Fund (Birdhouse Farmer’s Market, Shalom Farms, and The Underground Kitchen Community Project). While you are enjoying your soup, each organization will give a short presentation on their work during the pandemic and how a grant from Stone Soup can help them do more. The entire program should last about an hour.

Even though we can’t be together in person this year, it will be a spirit-filled evening that you won’t want to miss.

Below you can order soup, sign up for raffle tickets, or just make a donation to the event. If you have questions about the event, e-mail Laura Carr.

All orders must be received by February 15th. We are no longer accepting Soup Orders, but you can still purchase raffle tickets.
