In 1968, Sayre had the privilege of meeting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at The National Cathedral in Washington, DC, a week before King was tragically gunned down in Memphis, Tenn., and in the aftermath, witnessed riots igniting across our nation’s capitol. The experience not only haunted him, but also confronted him with the meaning of the cross. Today as a world famous artist, he continues at times to confront the meaning and impact of the cross within his works, exploring the implications it has for the wider world.
The gathering begins at 6 p.m. in the Parish Hall, with dinner served at 6:30 p.m. Cost for this event $18 per person for dinner Limited space is available, so please make your reservations early with Jean Olson.
