Contrast in Studies



Back in Wilmore now-- I'll take the next several days to unpack more of the gathering at Yale, a.k.a Revival Camp. Actually, it will probably take years to completely unfold for me. Anyhow, here's a start.

The top two photos are of the Yale Repertory Theatre (a.k.a. the Calvary Baptist Church circa. 1869) The bottom two were found within about fifteen feet of each other in the historic Dwight Edwards Chapel on the "old campus" of Yale University. They narrate the story(ies). In fact, Yale itself is a microcosm of the movement from modernity to post-modernity; from one meta-narrative to a hundred or even a thousand fractured narratives all of which resist any larger sense of grand story. I couldn't get two of these turned right, and yet that forms a sort of parable in itself. By clicking on the images they will enlarge giving you the opportunity to read the fine print.
