Project: Hope for a Tree Cut Down

Inspired by "Life of the Beloved" by Henri Nouwen, Hope for a Tree Cut Down is about something new beginning from very old roots, life from devastation, trust from cynicism, love out of fear and community from isolation.

Curated by Tara Ward and Ryan Marsh, Church of the Beloved members create a contemplative worship service by blending traditional Lutheran liturgy with modern instrumentation in this project.
