Gates of Paradise, an exhibition of ten paintings of the Hebrew Bible by First Church member Henry Gates, is on display in Margaret Jewett Hall. The originals are 15th century bronze doors to the Duomo in Florence, Italy. They illustrate the gathered people of Israel with all the Biblical energy and turmoil of Genesis, Exodus, Joshua, and Kings. As we regather, these scenes remind of our initial covenant in faith.
