About the Event

“Say Yes” is a spiritual experience integrating art, theology, and prayer to discuss the importance of mental health practices. Juxtaposing story-teaching, crowd participation, humor, and image creation, Erickson leads participants through a conversation about the death of a dream and the overwhelming voice of Giving Up in our lives. “Say Yes” reveals this moment not as an ending but as a sacred doorway into a deeper invitation to our hopes, vocation, and our existence itself.

Erickson, known to his Instagram followers as “Scott the Painter,” is a touring artist and performance speaker who uses his talents and the biblical narrative to create art which speaks to our shared human experience. He has been a working visual artist for over a decade, and has had his work appear on CNN, National Geographic, and various magazines. He is also co-author of the books Prayer: Forty Days of Practice and May It Be So. Erickson lives in Vancouver, Washington, with his wife and three children. 

The program runs 90 minutes and is free to the public. If needed, free childcare is available (for infants-1st grade) by contacting Rev. Vicki Robinson. (vicki.robinson@cos-umc.org).
