May 6, 2016 — One of these works of art has a special tie to Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary. The “A is for Activist” themed quilt is a collection of patches created by youth participants in Literature for All of Us as they reflected on violence within their own communities. Rev. Dr. Margaret Ann Crain, professor emeritus of Christian education at Garrett-Evangelical assembled the quilt. Although her contributions to the academy and the church have made her one of the most well-known and well-respected scholar practitioners in her field, in her free time, she has been developing her quilting skills. Through her creative participation in this empowering community project, Crain models the importance of engaging in conversations on social justice and compassion within our communities.
