Weekend of Wonder
February 25-27, 2022

Wonder Through Art

A graduate of Appalachian State University and Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond, Rev. Helms Jarrell is an interdisciplinary artist who weaves stories together using mixed media, ceramics, needlework, and jewelry-making techniques. She “intentionally integrates art, faith, and culture into organizing strategies to build people power and social change.” She facilitates workshops and is currently the organizing pastor of a church plant, Beloved Community Charlotte, in Charlotte.

Helms is one of several excellent workshop leaders who will guide us on Saturday afternoon. Participants will have the opportunity to select two sessions out of seven selections. These will focus on a wide variety of topics and experiences because we know that each person experiences awe, joy, and wonder in different ways. The areas of focus are: science, photography, art, music, sports, movement and meditation, and poetry.
