Mother Hatchett's vision

"Sleeping Church, Busy World" was painted by Mother Hatchett in the late 1950s (President Eisenhower is shown). The painting seems to be critical of churches that are not trying to save souls in this sinful world. Mother Hatchett packed in some great images to make her point. She may have been the same Mother Hatchett who served on the Wiseman Board of the Universal Hagar's Spiritual Church  and helped the church grow in Hackensack, N.J., and other places. The second to last photo shows a cutout photo of the artist.
