This first episode features someone who has been a part of the Rabbit Room since the very beginning, Russ Ramsey. Russ is a pastor in Nashville, Tennessee, an author of four fantastic books which you can find in the Rabbit Room Store, and as you’ll hear in the talk we’re about to play, he’s a remarkble essayist and a thoughtful appreciator of art, and in particlular, the art of Vincent Van Gogh. This session from Hutchmoot 2017 is called “The Striving Artist.”
