Join us for a webinar on Apr 21, 2016 at 1:00 PM EDT. This webinar will examine diverse manifestations of art and spaces for prayer and worship by various communities (Latino/a, African American, Asian American and Anglo). Attention will be paid to ways Christian art and architecture reflects, transmits, and imparts theological and spiritual meanings in culturally distinct ways. The content of the webinar will be applicable for those interested in the ways multicultural expressions of faith through sacred art and architecture inspire liturgy, enrich theological understanding, and build cohesive communities of faith.
