Advent: Harriet Tubman and the promised land
Can we find joy and beauty in the midst of struggle? Today Graham Sparkes draws us close to reveal the contextual layers behind Jacob Lawrence’s painting. The joy and beauty of Harriet Tubman leading hundreds of slaves to freedom is sharply contrasted against the reality that they needed to be freed in the first place.
Our role is both to celebrate stories of joy and beauty, and to be those who are making these stories reality today.
