Top ten neighborhoods to watch in America!

USA Today has named North Person as one of the top 10 up and coming neighborhoods in the country! Exciting to be around the corner from it all!

“The North Person Street Business District, about 5-10 minutes walk from downtown Raleigh, was once home to boarded-up store fronts and struggling businesses. Within the past year it has begun a transformation into a vibrant area that appeals to both residents and visitors.”

On May 2nd from 6-9pm, Trinity Gallery will host a First Friday reception for husband and wife artists Carla and Kristopher Williams.  The Williams’ photography has been featured by the North Carolina Museum of Art and in Our State and Walter magazines.

This exhibit, entitled “Life, Luxe, and Lens” is inspired by the couples love of travel and cultural diversity. From the ornate architecture of Paris to the sky scraping landmarks of Dubai, Carla and Khristopher’s images communicate compelling stories from around the world.

Stanbury, which opened Fall 2013, specializes in modern American cuisine with a menu that changes daily and highlights local and seasonal ingredients.  Located just a few blocks north of Trinity Gallery in historic Mordecai  (938 N. Blount Street), Stanbury is earning accolades from local foodies:

“…ambitious menu that is sure to have the mouths of serious foodies watering.”
- The News & Observer’s Mouthful blog

“…the Stanbury is a shining star in the Mordecai neighborhood.  Odd to find this level of quality in a restaurant on a quiet, mostly residential street.”
- Ron Wen,  Foodalicious Follies

“Judging by the crowds that have been flocking to Stanbury since day one, … the new restaurant is quickly building a fan base of its own….And with good reason.”

Reflections: Why we need artist

Here’s a great post from The Center for Faith and Work by author and pastor Tim Keller:

Why does the Church and why does Christianity need artists? While we have artists because they have the ability to see the greater reality, we need artists because… we can’t understand truth without art. You see, reason tells me about the truth, but I really cannot grasp what it means; I can’t understand it without art. Jonathan Edwards, the third president of Princeton University, probably the most important American theologian and one of the most prominent preachers in the First Great Awakening makes this point as well. Edwards said that unless you use imagination, unless you take a truth and you image it – which of course is art – you don’t know what it means. If you cannot visualize it, you don’t have a sense of it on your heart.
