Pub Church: “The Beauty of Mothers” with Shanny Lott and Aaron Hale

Date and Time

Sunday, May 14th
5:30 PM


Scholz Garten
1607 San Jacinto Blvd.
Ausin, TX 78701


In a special pub church program, we’ll welcome artist Shanny Lott and musician Aaron Hale to our stage at Scholz Garten to lead our dialogue concerning the beauty of mothers–both the archetype itself and our own moms. Join us in what is becoming an annual tradition for our congregation: the Front Porch Mother’s Day celebration.

Shanny Lott attended the University of Texas in the 60’s as a sculpture student under the legendary Charles Umlauf, but didn’t make it out with a degree the first time around. It was not until 1989 that Lott, once again at UT, gave that BFA another shot, this time from the painting studio rather than the sculpture garden.  Now, her paintings have been shipped all over the country; from Boulder City, Nevada to Littleton, Colorado, Malibu, California, and Destin, Florida. They hang in the homes of friends, family, and strangers.

Aaron Hale is an Austin-based an actor, podcaster and musician. He has traveled the US as a touring singer/songwriter and has had some of his music in TV shows and movies. A man of deep faith, Aaron’s open and giving mindset has also led him across the globe to do mission work in Africa through a number of different initiatives. Listen to his tunes here and see what you think: we’re looking forward to Aaron’s take on the matronly at this one.

Pub Church starts at 5:30 PM in the backroom of Scholz Garten. The second half of the conversation is opened up to the congregation as a roving microphone gives voice to all who wish to comment, question, and share their perspective. At the end of the discussion, a radically-open Communion service is always offered.
