Year Of Our Lordby T.R. Pearson, Langdon Clay (Photographer)
Lucas McCarty lives in the Mississippi Delta. He is the only white congregant in the African-American Trinity House of Prayer Holiness church. Lucas is bereft of the ability to speak due to cerebral palsy, yet he sings there in the church choir. Thus is the subject of _Year of Our Lord_, a portrait of courage, acceptance and grace, rendered in the lyrical prose of T.R. Pearson and the haunting photographs of Langdon Clay.
_Year of Our Lord_ is a visual journey, exploring one of the poorest parts of the American South, a place that economic progress has left behind. And it is a spiritual journey, a revelation of a community that has replaced the hope for earthly prosperity with an abundance of faith in God and the life beyond. The Delta’s is a culture that can look upon Lucas and say, “God doesn’t make a mistake.” It is a place that in the face of abject poverty can proclaim, life offers “too much joy!” Year of Our Lord, then, is an opportunity to see into another’s world, and to embrace the best of it.
