Golden States of Grace


Welcome to Golden States of Grace: Prayers of the Disinherited at First Congregational Church of Los Angeles. We are proud to host this Los Angeles premiere of photographer Rick Nahmias' extraordinary exploration into the many forms of faith and community.

While depictions of mainstream religion can be found in virtually every form of media, rarely seen are the sacred worlds of those marginalized by society: the outcast, the fallen, “the other.” Golden States of Grace: Prayers of the Disinherited aims to give image and voice to some of these groups, people who, because of the world, society, or themselves, have been all but silenced.

First Church presents this amazing work as a gift to the city of Los Angeles; the first time the exhibit has been presented in a sacred space. Please see our listing of gallery hours, however, we are happy to make arrangements for classes and groups who wish to experience the sights and sounds of Golden States of Grace.
