An exhibition at the Roeliff Jansen Historical Society, “Revived in Wood: Greek and Gothic Revival Churches” will run July through October. On 15 August at 2 pm, Dale Peterson will talk on Richard Upjohn, renowned architect of St John in the Wilderness, followed by a tour of the exhibition.
What have we missed during the pandemic? Adam Grant says it might be collective effervescence, that feeling of shared euphoria that we sometimes find in church. Emile Durkheim identified the experience in his pioneering study of religious life (1915).
Jay Corcoran and Dale Peterson, with technical assistance from Jacob Rieper, have enabled video streaming from the church! Thanks to Mibs, Lucy and John for valuable assistance and motivation.
