Visit a Truth Teller

  • Date: Sunday, April 2, 2023
  • Time: 12:15pm1:00pm EDT
  • Location: Margaret Jewett Hall


Sundays, March 5 – April 2, 12:15 p.m.

Each Lenten Sunday, we invite you to gather around one or two of our Truth Telling portraits for a brief ritual after worship. After listening to a short description of the truth-teller’s life and work, we will pause to look at the faces—the eyes—and to read the quote. We will sing a verse or two of a song and then send each other forth, inspired to go speak the truth in our lives and in our world! You will also be invited to linger in casual conversation and to engage each other in response to some ‘truth-telling prompts’  that will be available on tables in Margaret Jewett Hall and Hastings Common.


These portraits are the opposite of “hot takes” or quick opinions. They invite you to ponder a person, their words, and the issues that inspire their life’s journey, work, activism, and imagination. They welcome you into a vital conversation, across time and space, about what it means to be an American.
