Bryan Doerries – Guest Preacher
April 7 @ 11:15 am - 1:00 pm
Bryan Doerries will be St. Ann’s guest preacher in the Lenten Preaching Series “Reimagining the Possible” on Sunday, April 7, 2019. He will speak at Early Church, 9:30 am. and at Holy Eucharist, 11:15 am.
Lent is a season in which Christians reflect on Jesus’ journey to the cross. It is a time of introspection and self-examination in which we reckon with the mistakes of the past and confront the burden of sin in our lives. On four Sundays in Lent, guest preachers will invite us to resist the legacy of sin over generations and centuries and to engage personally and collectively in the work of reconciliation, restoration and healing in our communities and our world.
Bryan Doerries is the co-founder of Theater of War Productions (ToWP) and the company’s artistic director. For over ten years, ToWP has staged readings of classical Greek tragedies and engaged audiences in conversation to address public health and social issues in nontraditional venues across the country and around the world. ToWP partners with the U.S. Department of Defense, as well the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and Department of Veterans Services and many other institutions and organizations, including the New York and Brooklyn Public Libraries. Doerries is the first and current Public Artist-in-Residence for the City of New York.
