After the year we’ve had, everyone needs a little hope and joy.
And an angel.
Inspired by a project in Kennebunkport, Maine, the Saugatuck Church arts and ministry team wanted to design something to engage Westporters as they passed by.
Call it the downtown church’s holiday gift to the community.
Katherine Ross designed the wings. Michael Brennecke cut them, dug the hole and mixed the cement to secure them on the broad lawn outside the handsome building.
“We have been so isolated from each other, and under so much stress,” says Rev. Alison Patton.
“We hope these angel wings spark a little playfulness, give us a way to connect with each other, and encourage folks to share.” (Don’t forget to tag Saugatuck Church!)
“The world needs love, justice and compassion this season So we ae calling all angels.”
A sign will go up soon, but you heard it here first: “Be an angel this season. Take a selfie to post!”
