On Sunday, March 31, following the 11 a.m. service, we welcome guest Ascension Forum leader Carolyn Halpin-Healy, Executive Director of Arts and Minds, an organization committed to improving quality of life for people living with Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias through engagement with art. She has been a lecturer at the Metropolitan Museum for many years, and also co-taught a class at Union Seminary with Mother Posey Krakowski, focusing on contemplative seeing of art from a variety of religious traditions. She says of this Sunday’s forum, “I would like to focus on collective looking and dialogue, and how at its most robust, it can be a kind of communion and spur to transformation.”
