Inside Philadelphia’s Church of the Advocate, underneath the Gothic Revival arches and stained glass, there’s a message written on a plain wood board. It reads, “A man of sorrow and acquainted with grief. Can it be described?”
Thursday’s multimedia storytelling event proved that it can. Put on by WHYY, The Association of Independents in Radio (AIR), the Lenfest Institute, and the Wyncote Foundation, “Finding Sanctuary” featured stories of seeking peace, celebrating culture and joining together to build community.
