On June 30, 2019, St. Paul UCC Pekin, IL welcomed artist, R. Rashad Reed, who gave a testimony on how he uses his God-given talents. As reported at St Paul’s Worship and Spiritual Life meeting in April 2019, Ryan was commissioned by Dr. John and Mrs. Gayle Cooper to create a work of art that celebrates St Paul receiving the Illinois Conference of the United Church of Christ Local Evangelism, Envisioning and Planting (LEEAP) grant (March 2019). This beautiful hand carved work was blessed and dedicated to the church.  The work depicts and features these UCC symbols- the cross, the crown, the orb, and the “God is Still Speaking” comma.
