Veteran, artist and Northlake member Trish Brownlee explores the narrative of “Thank you for service.” This deep and challenging service asks others to have a spirit of curiosity, even when the questions result in answers that are difficult to hear or see. Through artwork and storytelling, Trish invites us to examine the role we have to play in war and connecting to our military veterans during this Memorial Day weekend. [Recording opens with reading of “Walking the Crooked Path” by Thomas Rhodes. Then “For When We Have No Words” by Trish, then Steve Brownlee performs “Pallar Anders Visa” written by In Flames, then Trish’s sermon. The closing words are “The World is Too Beautiful” by Eric Williams (modified).] You can view a video of Trish’s papermaking work at https://trishbrownlee.weebly.com/breakingrag.html or see the artworks that were displayed on Northlake’s walls here: https://trishbrownlee.weebly.com/shadowboxes.html
