Adult CHRISTIAN FORMATION & EdUCATION

Christian Formation - Adult Education

Sundays at 9:15 - 10:15 a.m. in the Parish Hall

April 24:

Winslow Homer: The Untold Story of America’s Best-Loved Painter.  On Sunday, April 24th at 9.15 am at Formation Hour in the Parish Hall, parishioner and author Bill Cross will speak about his new biography, Winslow Homer: American Passage (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, to be released April 12th).  The life of Homer (1836-1910) and the works he made address many issues that matter today: race, class conflict, judicial equality, technical innovation and much more. Homer was witness to the Civil War, to colonial tyranny, and to the rhythms of sea, storm, tide and season as women and men confronted powers far greater than their own.  No power in Homer’s life was greater than that of God – which the painter acknowledged profoundly, despite being resolutely non-observant in his formal religious practice.


Filmmaker Ken Burns writes that Bill “[brings] to life this most American of painters” in his book, which is available in bookstores and online.  After his presentation Bill will be happy to inscribe your copy.


Guests welcome.
